What is Pathology - During inflammation, how does the permeability of tiny arteries increase?
There are a number of mechanisms, the most notable of which are: The most prevalent cause of increased permeability is the formation of gaps between endothelial cells. Under the influence of histamine or bradykinin, it occurs mostly in venules in the early phases of inflammation. It is mediated by cytokines in the later phases of inflammation. As a result of endothelial cell retraction, these inflammatory mediators induce intercellular gaps to expand.
-Endothelial cell direct injury: This is an indication of severe injury induced by a variety of substances and can occur in arterioles, capillaries, or venules. Because the breach in the vessel wall is difficult to heal, cells and plasma components leak indiscriminately into the interstitial regions.
& Leukocyte-mediated injury: Neutrophils adhere to endothelial cells, increasing their permeability, especially in pulmonary venules or glomerular capillaries. & Increased transcytosis: Under the influence of vascular endothelial growth factor, vesicular movement of fluids across the cytoplasm of venules may occur (VEGF). Increased leakiness of newly created blood vessels in the granulation tissue and chronic inflammation are also linked to VEGF.
