The nature of remodeling arteries in different body parts of rats in adapting to local hemodynamic changes induced by tail-suspension was tested by observing the ultrastructural changes of hindlimb and cerebral arteries from 4-wk tail-suspended (SUS-4), 1-wk recovered (REC-1), and control (CON) rats through transmission electron microscopy. The results support the assumption that the peripheral effector mechanism might play an important role in the genesis of post flight orthostatic intolerance.
