Analysis of rat papillary muscle transverse deformation by laser diffraction.

Abstract

We use laser diffraction in the analysis of the transversal deformation that the papillary muscle of the female and male Wistar rat may undergo when is subjected to different tension (tension range, 0-30 mN) in the longitudinal plane. Papillary muscles from the right ventricle were illuminated at normal incidence with a He-Ne laser lasing at 594 nm at room… (More)
