Abstract

To evaluate alterations induced by essential and renovascular hypertension on vasomotoresponse to CGRP, substance P, potassium and noradrenaline human subcutaneous vessels were studied. Isolated segments (1 to 2 mm) of small subcutaneous arteries (diameter 0.1 to 0.9 mm) and veins (0.1 to 1.0 mm) with intact endothelium from patients (essential n = 10, renovascular n = 6) and controls (n = 17) were used.
