Description

Blood Vessels and Lymphatics focuses on the embryology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and pathology of blood vessels and lymphatics. The selection first offers information on the embryology and gross, microscopic and submicroscopic anatomy, biophysical principles and physiology, and pharmacology and biochemistry of arterial and arteriolar systems. The text then takes a look at the sympathetic innervation of arterial tree. The publication examines microcirculation and the venous system, including the structural basis of microcirculation, exchange of materials across capillary wall, pathology of microcirculation, biochemistry, and pharmacology. The book then elaborates on coronary, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal circulation, blood vessels of the pituitary and the thyroid, and disorders affecting arterial or venous circulation. The selection is a vital source of information for readers interested in the study of blood vessels and lymphatics.
