In a previous study, we have demonstrated that turbulences in arteries less than 1.5 mm in diameter perfused ex vivo by an oscillated flow can be determined using nonlinear mathematical models. The hypothesis tested here was that nonlinear analyses enable the in vivo detection of turbulences in blood flow in vessels with dimensions affected by microsurgery. Twenty Wistar male rats were studied. After an intraperitoneal anesthesia (50 mg/kg sodium pentobarbital), each right carotid artery was… CONTINUE READING
