INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES To characterize the viscoelastic properties of the aorta and pulmonary arteries and the effects of vascular smooth muscle activation on arterial buffering function. MATERIAL AND METHOD Aortic and pulmonary artery pressure and diameter were measured in six anesthetized sheep under baseline conditions, and during arterial hypertension induced by mechanical vascular occlusion (passive), and i.v. phenylephrine (active). Arterial wall elasticity and viscosity were… CONTINUE READING
