“…Radially oriented vessels were described by Gilje,6 Zimmer and Demis,7 and Rapp et al 1 Zimmer and Demis, noting this phe¬ nomenon following injury, postulated that such a radial formation was a chemotactic phenomenon. This peculiar formation, which plays a special role in the reparative proc¬ ess, is not limited to traumatic inflammation.…”

“…The diagnostic value of capillary microscopy is douhtful. The shape, permeahility, fragility or blood flow through a vessel are recordable but phenomena such as tortuosity, extravasation of red cells, or aggregate formation within the vessel are not diagnostic of any particular dermatological disease, although they may he a feature contributing more to some pathological states than to others (J31och, 1956;Rapp et al, 1963).…”

“…On the other hand, tape stripping induces mechanical disruptions of the epidermal barrier that lead to skin inflammation [20, 21]. Similar to many other inflammatory skin disorders, microvascular remodeling is usually involved [22].…”

“…Surprisingly, despite the popularity of tape stripping in dermatological research and practices, as well as its potential of causing skin inflammation, little work has been done on revealing the microvasculature changes and/or to correlate the degree of the vascular reactions with the degree of damage produced. To our knowledge, there is only one prior study that has recorded the skin capillary changes after tape stripping procedure, and the authors have concluded that there is not always a correlation between the macroscopic appearance of the stimulated area and the microscopic anatomic vascular changes [21]. However, this study was performed using capillaroscopy, which can only image the very shallow capillaries and may not be able to provide a complete microvascular network.…”
