What are the arachnoid villi composed of? These are formed from the fusion of arachnoid membrane and the endothelium of a dural venous sinus that it bulges into. 44 ᭢ DRAMROO APPLIED SURGICAL PHYSIOLOGY VIVAS 6. What is the rate of cerebral blood flow? 50 ml per 100 g of brain tissue. It accounts for 15% of the CO, or about 750 mlminϪ1. 8. What is the basic mechanism of autoregulation? There are two principle reasons: ᭹ Myogenic response: an increase in the arteriolar wall tension brought on by an increase in the arterial pressure stimulates contraction of the mural smooth muscle cells.

Give examples. Lipophilic molecules that are able to penetrate the lipid bilayer of the cell membrane. Important examples are the steroid hormones (glucocorticoids and 42 ᭢ DRAMROO APPLIED SURGICAL PHYSIOLOGY VIVAS mineralocorticoids of the adrenal cortex, gonadal hormones) and the thyroid hormones. C 13. How do these produce their effects? The lipophilic hormone crosses the cell membrane and binds to the intracellular receptor. The complex formed then translocates to the nucleus of the cell through the nuclear envelope.

What determines the preload? This is determined by the venous return to the heart. The amount of venous return itself depends on the difference between the systemic filling pressure (driving blood back to the heart) and the central venous pressure (CVP) (working against the venous return). DRAMROO ᭢ 37 APPLIED SURGICAL PHYSIOLOGY VIVAS C 6. Define the afterload. What is this analogous to, in simple terms? This is the ventricular wall tension that has to be generated in order to eject blood out of the ventricle.
