Structural adaptation of the blood vessel wall occurs in response to mechanical factors related to blood pressure and flow. To elucidate the relative roles of pressure, flow, and medium composition, we have developed a novel organ culture system in which rabbit thoracic aorta, held at in vivo length, can be perfused and pressurized at independently varied(More)
