The state of the receptor apparatus in the walls of certain major blood vessels after irradiation by x-rays

  • G. I. Alekseev
Morphology and Pathomorphology


Experiments were performed on cats. The author studied the condition of receptor apparatus in a number of large blood vessels at the early periods following x-ray irradiation. Pronounced reactive changes of receptors were revealed in the wall of the venae cavae, the pulmonary veins and the synocarotid zones on the third day following the irradiation with the dose of 600 r. These changes were manifested in various morphological pictures from increased argentophilia to complete disintegration of the terminal apparatuses. These changes in the receptors are analogous to those observed formerly by a number of authors in other pathological conditions and are, evidently, nonspecific in character.
