This chapter is concerned with the microcirculation in inflammation, which is modulated and influenced by platelet–leukocyte interactions (see above) and by the coagulation system. Thrombin, the main product of the coagulation cascade, activates vascular endothelial cells, mononuclear leukocytes and platelets through the protease-activated. Microcirculation is composed of arterioles, capillaries, and venules, where the diameter of blood vessels varies approximately from 5 to μm. The behavior of blood cells, including red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes), and platelets (thrombocytes), is of great interest in physiology and biomedical engineering. Inflammation is typically viewed as a localized protective response to tissue damage and/or microbial invasion, which serves to isolate and destroy the injurious agent and the injured tissue and to prepare the tissue for eventual repair and healing. The survival value of the inflammatory response for both the injured tissue and the animal as a whole is evidenced by the fact that . "The microcirculation is highly responsive to, and a vital participant in, the inflammatory response. All segments of the microvasculature (arterioles, capillaries, and venules) exhibit characteristic phenotypic changes during inflammation that appear to be directed toward enhancing the delivery of inflammatory cells to the injured/infected tissue, isolating the region from healthy tissue and.

The microvessels include terminal arterioles, metarterioles, capillaries, and oles carry oxygenated blood to the capillaries, and blood flows out of the capillaries through venules into : Arteriole.

The book starts with a comprehensive overview of the coronary microcirculation written by Fonseca et al., thoroughly describing the characteristics of coronary microcirculation, from anatomical and histological aspects to physiology with emphasis on the regulatory mechanisms, and finally elucidating some pathophysiologic mechanisms in relation Cited by: 1.
Impaired microcirculation secondary to underlying vascular endothelial dysfunction is increasingly recognized to play a central role in the pathophysiology associated with numerous postoperative complications. Noxious stimuli, including direct injury from surgical trauma and hypoxia (e.g., ischemia‐reperfusion injury), trigger adrenergic‐inflammatory‐thrombotic‐immune cascades to Cited by: 1. The Microcirculation in Health and Critical Disease Article Literature Review (PDF Available) in Progress in cardiovascular diseases 51(2) September with Reads. Acute inflammation is the early (almost immediate) response of a tissue to injury. It is nonspecific and may be evoked by any injury short of one that is immediately lethal. Acute inflammation may be regarded as the first line of defense against injury and is characterized by changes in the microcirculation: exudation of fluid and emigration of. Dear Colleagues, Microcirculation plays important roles in normal physiology and in a multitude of pathological conditions. Microvascular leukocyte endothelial interactions and specific changes in blood flow are a hallmark of the innate immune response in inflammation.
