Morphometry of pig coronary arterial trees.
To establish a mathematical model of the tree like arteries for the purpose of hemodynamic analysis, a complete set of morphometric data of pig coronary arteries is presented. For the purpose ofExpand

Diameter-defined Strahler system and connectivity matrix of the pulmonary arterial tree.
For modeling of a vascular tree for hemodynamic analysis, the well-known Weibel, Horsfield, and Strahler systems have three shortcomings: vessels of the same order are all treated as in parallel,Expand

Imaging coronary artery microstructure using second-harmonic and two-photon fluorescence microscopy.
The microstructural basis for the mechanical properties of blood vessels has not been directly determined because of the lack of a nondestructive method that yields a three-dimensional view of theseExpand

Biaxial incremental homeostatic elastic moduli of coronary artery: two-layer model.
The detailed mechanical properties of various layers of the coronary artery are important for understanding the function of the vessel. The present article is focused on the determination of theExpand

The pattern of coronary arteriolar bifurcations and the uniform shear hypothesis
By minimizing the cost function, which is the sum of the friction power loss and the metabolic energy proportional to blood volume, Murray derived an optimal condition for a vascular bifurcation.Expand

Effect of cigarette smoking on nitric oxide, structural, and mechanical properties of mouse arteries.
Cigarette smoking (CS) is a major risk factor for vascular disease. The aim of this study was to quantitatively assess the influence of CS on mouse arteries. We studied the effect of short-term (6Expand
