AbstractArteries in vivo are subjected to large longitudinal stretch which may change significantly due to vascular disease and surgery. However, little is known about the effect of longitudinal stretch on vascular function and wall remodeling, although the effects of tensile and shear stress from blood pressure and flow have been well documented. To study the effect of longitudinal stretch on vascular function and wall remodeling, porcine carotid arteries were longitudinally stretched 20% more… CONTINUE READING
