Branching properties of the pulmonary arterial tree during pre- and postnatal development.

Abstract

We measured arterial diameter as a function of generation number (#) in the arteriograms of six postmortem lung preparations from human infants aged 35 to 48 wks post-conceptional age (PCA). The log-log plot of mean diameter as a function of generation number revealed a linear decrease in mean and median diameter with increasing #, which was characterized… (More)
