Effect of Denervation on Diameter and Reactivity of Arteries in the Bat Wing
Responsiveness of the arterial vessels to intravenous and topically applied epinephrine was determined before and after denervation. Responsiveness to injected epinephrine increased 14 days after denervation; responsiveness to topically applied epinephrine was unaffected by denervation; arterial vessels remained dilated in excess of three weeks following denervation.
