ABSTRACT
The increase in the drop or gradient of the cuff blood pressure (the pressure in a cuff that just allows an appreciable amount of blood to pass) along the tail of the mouse that may be observed when the circulation to the tail is allowed to resume after it has been occluded for some minutes, is accompanied by a considerable increase in blood flow into the tail. It is concluded from this that changes that develop in the tail during the occlusion in some way reduce the resistance to flow of the segmental branches of the arterial system of the tail. Further details of the results also suggest a somewhat more delayed decrease in the resistance to flow along the trunk arteries of the tail.

    Background: The extent of arteriolar narrowing has been recognized as a major sign of end-organ damage in patients with hypertension, but most methods used for its evaluation are highly dependent on the observer. We describe a new semi-automated method to measuring arteriolar-to-venous (A/V)...
