Segments of carotid and tail arteries were used to determine the effects of two-kidney Goldblatt hypertension on mechanical properties and chemical contents. Arteries were obtained after 4 and 12 wk of hypertension. Systolic pressures averaged 129 mmHg in control animals and 150 mmHg in hypertensive ones. Pressure-diameter data were recorded under… (More)
