Abstract

We have shown that drag-reducing polymers (DRP) restore perfusion to a stenotic bed by lowering microvascular resistance. We studied whether resistance-lowering by DRP are due to changes in hydrodynamics or vasodilation. During intravital microscopy of rat cremaster muscle (n=18), DRP infusion increased aortic flow (p
