Abstract:

Femoral vein smooth muscle is controlled by circulating catecholamines and innervation by the sympathetic nervous system. In this study the dog fermoral vein diameter-pressure relationships have been measured in vivo using radiographic imaging of the vein and a servo infusion system to control venous pressure. Changes in the nonlinear diameter-pressure relationship were observed with smooth muscle constriction and with location along the vein. Modified author abstract
