Our aim was to investigate the effects of ageing on the vascular contractility of carotid and basilar arteries from guinea-pigs, in a model of total stenosis. Moreover, we attempted to identify whether total stenosis of the left common carotid (stenosed) in adult guinea-pigs, would affect the contractions of contralateral carotid (intact) and basilar… CONTINUE READING
