Figure 6.11

Flow-mediated vasodilation. In vitro porcine coronary arterioles dilate in response to flow achieved by step-increases in perfusion pressure (ΔP) without changing the mid-point intraluminal pressure (A). Flow-induced dilation is endothelium-dependent (B)50. Reproduced with permission from American Physiological Society.
