The upper right panel gives values for pressure differences calculated for three networks of the rat mesentery with a mathematical flow simulation using the in vitro viscosity law (left bar) and the in vivo viscosity law (middle bar) including the assumption of an endothelial surface layer. (Modified after Pries et al. 1994). The right bar gives the mean pressure drop determined by micropuncture before and after microinfusion of heparinase, which cleaves carbohydrate side chains from the glycocalyx.
