Contribution of collagen fiber undulation to regional biomechanical properties along porcine thoracic aorta.

Abstract

As major extracellular matrix components, elastin, and collagen play crucial roles in regulating the mechanical properties of the aortic wall and, thus, the normal cardiovascular function. The mechanical properties of aorta, known to vary with age and multitude of diseases as well as the proximity to the heart, have been attributed to the variations in the… (More)
