The passive elastic characteristics of the abdominal aorta were investigated in two experimental animal models, aiming at assessing the stress-strain relation of the aortic wall. Twenty porcine and 15 rabbit healthy abdominal aortas were subjected to uniaxial stress-strain analysis, performed on a tensile-testing device, while immersed in a physiologic saline bath at body temperature. Measured parameters included original length, width and thickness, as well as axial force and extension. Based… CONTINUE READING
