The functional lumen imaging probe (FLIP) for evaluation of the esophagogastric junction.
There is a need for new methods to study the dynamics of the esophagogastric junction (EGJ). The aims were to verify the efficacy and usefulness of a "functional lumen imaging probe" (FLIP) for theExpand

Biomechanical regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell functions: from in vitro to in vivo understanding
Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) have critical functions in vascular diseases. Haemodynamic factors are important regulators of VSMC functions in vascular pathophysiology. VSMCs areExpand

In vivo areal modulus of elasticity estimation of the human tympanic membrane system: modelling of middle ear mechanical function in normal young and aged ears.
The quasi-static elastic properties of the tympanic membrane system can be described by the areal modulus of elasticity determined by a middle ear model. The response of the tympanic membrane toExpand

Opening angle and residual strain in a three-layered model of pig oesophagus.
Studies of various biological tissues have shown that residual strains are important for tissue function. Since a force balance exists in whole wall thickness specimens cut radially, it is evidentExpand

Distension of the renal pelvis in kidney stone patients: sensory and biomechanical responses
The pathogenesis of symptoms in urolithiasis is poorly understood. Traditionally increased endoluminal pressure is considered the main mechanism causing pain in the upper urinary tract but clinicalExpand

Manual pressure distension of the human saphenous vein changes its biomechanical properties-implication for coronary artery bypass grafting.
Patency rates of saphenous vein grafts following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) depend on multiple factors. Information regarding the impact of biomechanical properties of vein grafts onExpand
