A METHOD FOR STUDYING THE DYNAMICS OF TRANSCAPILLARY TRANSFER QUANTITATIVELY AT THE MICROSCOPIC LEVEL IN SITU IN LIVING ORGANS
- Comparison of Different Methods for the Calculation of the Microvascular Flow Index. Pozo, Mario O.; Kanoore Edul, Vanina S.; Ince, Can; Dubin, Arnaldo // Critical Care Research & Practice;2012, p1
The microvascular flow index (MFI) is commonly used to semiquantitatively characterize the velocity of microcirculatory perfusion as absent (0), intermittent (1), sluggish (2), or normal (3). There are three approaches to computeMFI: (1) the average of the predominant flow in each of the four...
- metarteriole. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p1455
A definition of the term "metarteriole," which refers to a small vessel connecting an arteriole to a venule from which true capillaries are given off, is presented.
- CHAPTER 7: CAPILLARIES AND BLOOD FLOW. // Cardiovascular/Basic Science Review Workbook;2003, p49
Chapter 7 of the book "Cardiovascular/Basic Science Review Workbook" is presented. It discusses the process of capillary blood flow. A pathway for rapid diffusion or transport of substances from blood to the tissue is created by capillary blood flow. Capillaries are open or closed depending on...
- Angiotensin II production and distribution in the kidney: I. A kinetic model. Schalekamp, M. A. D. H.; Danser, A. H. J. // Kidney International;May2006, Vol. 69 Issue 9, p1543
Information on the levels of angiotensin II (Ang II) and its receptors in the various renal tissue compartments is still incomplete. A model is presented describing the kinetics of Ang II production, distribution, and disposal in the renal cortex. Basic features are: (1) the model is designed to...
- Vacuolar granules in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii: polyphosphate and a 70-kDa polypeptide as major components. Komine, Yutaka; Eggink, Laura L.; Park, Hyoungshin; Hoober, J. Kenneth // Planta;May2000, Vol. 210 Issue 6, p897
The alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii contains cytoplasmic vacuoles that are often filled with a dense granule that is released from the cell by exocytosis. Purified granules contained polyphosphate, complexed with calcium and magnesium, as the predominant inorganic components. Antiserum was raised...
- Measurement of Pulmonary Flow Reserve and Pulmonary Index of Microcirculatory Resistance for Detection of Pulmonary Microvascular Obstruction. Ilsar, Rahn; Chawantanpipat, Chirapan; Chan, Kim H.; Dobbins, Timothy A.; Waugh, Richard; Hennessy, Annemarie; Celermajer, David S.; Ng, Martin K. C. // PLoS ONE;2010, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p1
Background: The pulmonary microcirculation is the chief regulatory site for resistance in the pulmonary circuit. Despite pulmonary microvascular dysfunction being implicated in the pathogenesis of several pulmonary vascular conditions, there are currently no techniques for the specific...
- Early Microvascular Dysfunction in Healthy Normal-Weight Males With Heredity for Type 2 Diabetes. Jörneskog, Gun; Kalan, Majid; Kuhl, Jeanette; Båvenholm, Peter; Katz, Abram; Allerstrand, Gustaf; Alvarsson, Michael; Efendic, Suad; Stenson, Claes-Göran; Pernow, John; Wahren, John; Brismar, Kerstin // Diabetes Care;Jun2005, Vol. 28 Issue 6, p1495
Presents a study which investigated whether genetic factors are associated with disturbances in nutritive skin capillary circulation, non-nutritive skin microcirculation and bracial macrocirculation. Research design and methods; Results; Conclusions.
- DIRECT VISUALIZATION OF THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS ON CAPILLARY UPTAKE OF DYE. Cocchiara, John L.; Threefoot, Sam A. // Angiology;Aug1966, Vol. 17 Issue 8, p583
Direct observation and photography have shown that there are effects by various preparations of drugs on the uptake of substance by capillaries. Meralluride, digoxin, Lyo-hydrodiuril, hyaluronidase and mercaptomerin increased capillary and venous uptake of dyes, whereas PLV-2, epinephrine,...
- spider-burst. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p2043
The article presents a definition for the term "spider-burst," which refers to an area on the leg in which capillaries radiate from a central point.
