Arteries that develop vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) may have altered contractility and compliance. Whether these changes are due to alterations in the smooth muscle cells or the arterial wall extracellular matrix is unknown. This study elucidated the location of such changes and determined the calcium sensitivity of vasospastic arteries. Dogs were placed under general anesthesia and underwent creation of SAH using the double-hemorrhage model. Vasospasm was assessed by… CONTINUE READING
