Fibrinolysis is the physiological breakdown of blood clots by enzymes such as plasmin. Organisation: following the thrombotic event, residual vascular thrombus will be re-organised histologically with several possible outcomes. For an occlusive thrombus (defined as thrombosis within a small vessel that leads to complete occlusion), wound healing will reorganise the occlusive thrombus into collagenous scar tissue, where the scar tissue will either permanently obstruct the vessel, or contract down with myofibroblastic activity to unblock the lumen. For a mural thrombus (defined as a thrombus in a large vessel that restricts the blood flow but does not occlude completely), histological reorganisation of the thrombus does not occur via the classic wound healing mechanism. Instead, the platelet-derived growth factor degranulated by the clotted platelets will attract a layer of smooth muscle cells to cover the clot, and this layer of mural smooth muscle will be vascularised by the blood inside the ...

  • Recent studies have shown that cerebral functional hyperemia begins in capillaries, and red blood cells (RBCs) act as autonomous regulators of brain capillary perfusion. (
  • this process, termed neurovascular coupling, underlies use-dependent increases in local perfusion (functional hyperemia). (
  • Capillary perfusion of the rat brain cortex. (
  • Conclusions: The results indicate that skin nutritive papillary capillary function can be assessed by CAVM and DRS, but not with LDPM because of its dependence of the deep plexus perfusion. (
  • Laser Doppler values were expressed as: (a) AUC 5min (area under the curve over 5min of release), (b) time to peak response, (c) % reactive hyperaemia, and (d) peak perfusion ratio. (
  • Healthy aged women presented dilated capillaries with sustained perfusion and endothelial dysfunction with preserved vascular smooth muscle reactivity. (
  • Communication between active neurons and the cerebral microvasculature regulates activity-dependent increases in blood perfusion (functional hyperemia) in the brain through processes collectively referred to as 'neurovascular coupling' (NVC) ( Iadecola, 2017 ). (
  • 1 Cerebral energy demands are serviced through control mechanisms such as functional hyperemia and cerebrovascular autoregulation, which tailor the blood supply to tissue needs and maintain perfusion over a wide range of blood pressures. (
  • However, the relationship between CBF and events at the level of the penetrating arterioles and capillaries is not well established. (
  • On inhaling Amyl Nitrosum, it rapidly dilates all arterioles and capillaries, producing flushings of face, heat, and throbbing in the head. (
  • In the central nervous system, neurovascular coupling is initiated by neurotransmitter release at the synapse, which eventually leads to the control of contractile elements that surround vasculature, typically arterioles and capillaries. (
  • We studied the localization of blood flow control in skeletal muscle by short-term microocclusions (30-60 seconds) of capillaries and arterioles of the pectoralis muscle in anesthetized frogs ( Rana pipiens ). (
  • 10,11 More recently, the technique was applied to assess exercise-induced hyperemia in skeletal muscle. (
  • While the locus of blood flow control (at least in skeletal muscle tissue) is widely thought to reside at the level of the arteriole, research has begun to suggest that capillary endothelial cells may be coordinators of skeletal muscle blood flow during functional hyperaemia. (
  • This study examined the effect of local infusion of an NOS inhibitor on skeletal muscle glucose uptake (2-deoxyglucose) and capillary blood flow (contrast-enhanced ultrasound) during in situ contractions in rats. (

  • Peripheral microvascular function, i.e., skin capillary density and capillary recruitment, was assessed by capillary microscopy. (
  • Laser speckle contrast imaging was used in the evaluation of cutaneous microvascular reactivity, and intra-vital video microscopy was used to evaluate skin capillary density and reactivity, before and after CrS. (
  • Oral supplementation with creatine in healthy, moderately physically active young adults improves systemic endothelial-dependent microvascular reactivity and increases skin capillary density and recruitment. (
  • During a hyperinsulinemic clamp, we measured leg blood flow with venous occlusion plethysmography, skin capillary density with capillaroscopy, endothelium-(in)dependent vasodilatation of skin microcirculation with iontophoresis of acetylcholine and sodium nitroprusside combined with laser Doppler fluxmetry, and skin vasomotion by Fourier analysis of microcirculatory blood flow.

  • Reactive hyperemia after intermittent ischemia, which leads to vasodilation through regional metabolic changes as well as secondary endothelium-mediated smooth muscle cell relaxation. (
  • Some of the putative vasodilatory agents (associated with metabolism) include, but are not limited to: carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen ion (H+), potassium (K+), adenosine (ADO), nitric oxide (NO)). These vasodilators released from the tissue act on local arterioles causing vasodilation, this causes a decrease in vascular resistance and allows an increase in blood flow to be directed toward the capillary bed of the active tissue. (
  • It is thought that vasodilators (released from active muscle fibers) can stimulate a local capillary endothelial cells which, in turn, causes the conduction of a vasodilatory signal to upstream arterioles, this then elicits arteriolar vasodilation consequently, creating a pathway of least resistance so blood flow can be precisely direct to capillaries supplying the metabolically active tissue. (
  • Increases in cutaneous microvascular vasodilation induced by post-occlusive reactive hyperemia ( p = 0.0078) were also observed. (
  • We measured capillary recruitment with capillaroscopy and endothelium-(in)dependent vasodilation by iontophoresis of acetylcholine and sodium nitroprusside before and during hyperinsulinemia (40 mU · m −2 · min −1 ). (

  • in 1919, august krogh reported that, in addition to the importance of capillary density for tissue oxygenation, it is not sufficient to simply supply an adequate amount of oxygen to the organ as a whole, but oxygen has to be distributed within the organ precisely where it is needed ( 27 , 28 ). (
  • 1 2 Several mechanisms have the potential to contribute to myocardial microcirculatory abnormalities in HCM such as reduced capillary density and vascular remodelling, 3 4 and extravascular forces such as wall stress and left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP). (

  • In this work, we demonstrate multiparametric imaging of visual stimulus-evoked hyperemia including blood flow, vessel diameter, and vascular red blood cell content/speed. (
  • Amyloid beta (Aβ), the peptide produced in toxic amounts in AD, is also vasculopathic, disrupting vascular endothelium and myocytes, obliterating capillaries and, likewise, impairing functional hyperemia and autoregulation. (
  • Here, using two-photon microscopy of brains in living mice, we demonstrate that stimulation-evoked increases in synaptic activity in the mouse somatosensory cortex evokes capillary dilation starting mostly at the first- or second-order capillary, propagating upstream and downstream at 5-20 µm/s. (

  • 4) Three benefits of Massage therapy on this system is: 1) that it "improves both general and local blood circulation", 2) Studies have shown that capillary vessel dilation and increased blood flow in an area occur with a massage. (
  • And this effect is the result of the release of a chemical: histamine which causes dilation of capillaries in that particular area. (
  • Thus acute smoking is associated with impaired capillary recruitment during peak reactive hyperaemia and impaired microvascular endothelium-dependent vasodilatation. (
  • Second, in rats an acute increase of FFA levels impairs muscle capillary recruitment ( 11 ), which raises the possibility that high FFA levels can directly impair microvascular function. (
  • Capillary hyperemia can be controlled by manipulating RBC properties independent of the neurovascular unit, providing an effective strategy to treat or prevent impaired functional hyperemia. (
