Dual effect of sympathetic hyperfunction on blood vessels in spontaneously hypertensive and stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats

Dual effect of sympathetic hyperfunction on blood vessels in spontaneously hypertensive and stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats
Mari Kondo, Tatyana Tenkova, and Takashi Fujiwara ( Japan , USA )

The sympathetic nervous system has been considered to be hyperactive from the very beginning after birth in spontaneously hypertensive and stroke-prone spontaneously
hypertensive rats. This is a primary factor for the development and maintenance of hypertensi on via structural and functional alterations of the arteries and the heart. It is. also described that the sympathetic hyperfunction probably play a protective role in necrosis of vascular smooth muscle cells in spontaneously hypertensive and stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats.
