Arterial wall remodels its geometry and mechanical properties in response to hypertension to maintain functionality. The elevated pressure is sensed through cellular mechanotransduction pathways, and extra extracellular matrix is synthesized, leading to thickening and stiffening. The present study enquires the response of aortic lamellar structure to hypertensive blood pressure regarding unchanged circumferential stress "profile" across the media as remodeling criterion. We tested the… CONTINUE READING
