Passive (papaverine induced) and active (spontaneous pressure induced) biomechanical properties of ischemic and nonischemic rat middle cerebral arteries (MCAs) were studied under pressurized conditions in vitro. Ischemic (1 h of occlusion), contralateral, and sham-operated control MCAs were isolated from male Wistar rats (n = 22) and pressurized using an(More)
The inner diameter and wall thickness of rat middle cerebral arteries (MCAs) were measured in vitro in both a pressure-induced, myogenically-active state and a drug-induced, passive state to quantify active and passive mechanical behavior. Elasticity parameters from the literature (stiffness derived from an exponential pressure-diameter relationship, beta,(More)
