Example sentences for: alveolar-capillary

How can you use “alveolar-capillary” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • In healthy volunteers, injection of contrast material did not produce any detectable modification in the lung tissue volume calculated using Lungview ®, probably because the contrast material remained strictly intravascular in the presence of an intact alveolar-capillary barrier and was rapidly eliminated in the urine [ 2].

  • Alteration in the alveolar-capillary barrier could also promote leakage of contrast material into the interstitial and alveolar spaces, with a consequent increase in extravascular lung water.

  • Similarly, in ALI breakdown of the constituents of the alveolar-capillary barrier (pulmonary epithelium or capillary endothelium) causes an increase in lung permeability, which is accompanied by interstitial and alveolar accumulation of water and proteins [ 11].

  • The former effect, which is not observed when the lungs are healthy [ 2], probably depends on alteration in the alveolar-capillary barrier that promotes extravascular leakage of contrast material.
