We compared aortic impedance and compliance in normotensive control and hypertensive Wistar rats. Hypertension was induced by unilateral nephrectomy plus steroid and salt water administration. After at least 8 wk of sustained hypertension (tail-cuff systolic pressures greater than 172 mmHg), open-chest ascending aortic micromanometric pressures and(More)

To assess how one type of atherosclerosis affects impedance, we studied arterial impedance in New Zealand White(More)
