    It has been made clear that electroretinography is the method of choice in the investigation of circulatory disturbances in the retina. It is a most important and the only objective method by which to judge the value of certain therapeutic measures. At the same time it has been shown that the...

    Daflon 500 mg (S-5682) is a purified, micronized flavonoid fraction containing 90% diosmin and 10% hesperidin that is currently used to treat chronic venous insufficiency and hemorrhoidal disease. Thus, it seemed of interest to evaluate the effects of S-5682 on ischemia/reperfusion, ie, the...

    The endothelium is not merely a barrier but it plays a key role in the maintenance of vascular homeostasis. A dysfunctional endothelium is an early marker of the development of atherosclerotic changes and can also contribute to cardiovascular events. Vascular reactivity tests represent the most...

    Sequential changes occurring in the digital plethysmogram after administration of hexamethonium (C6), lumbar epidural block and Priscoline given intraarterially were analyzed in terms of the hemodynamics of the small vessels of the skin. The vasculature of the bulbar conjunctiva was observed...

    Superficial vasomotor tone in the forearm has been thought to be dependent mostly on vasodilatation rather than vasoconstriction. Despite this view we re- port now that a mechanism for profound vasoconstriction exists in the forearm surface. This phenomenon was observed in normal subjects...

    The major mechanism of antihypertensive action of Ca2+ channel antagonists is the inhibition of Ca2+ entry into the vascular smooth muscle cell. Ca2+ channels are stabilized by these drugs in a mode unavailable for opening. The inhibition of Ca2+ entry leads to vasodilatation and lowering of...
