BACKGROUND The contributions of collagen, elastin, and smooth muscle to arterial mechanical properties in the in vivo human artery are not known. METHODS AND RESULTS We used a recently developed intravascular ultrasound technique to measure total brachial artery wall stress and incremental elastic modulus (Einc) in seven normal human subjects at baseline and after intra-arterial norepinephrine (1.2 micrograms) and nitroglycerin (100 micrograms). Then we applied a modified Maxwell model to… CONTINUE READING
