It is a well-known fact that the length of an artery in situ and the length of an excised artery differs. Retraction of blood vessels is usually observed. This pre-tension plays crucial role in arterial biomechanics. It augments an artery wall load-bearing capacity. This paper presents the longitudinal pre-strain of the human aorta as an index of human age. The length of abdominal aortas was measured during autopsies before and after segment resection. The longitudinal pre-strain was calculated… CONTINUE READING
