The selection of a mathematical descriptor for the passive arterial mechanical behavior has been long debated in the literature and customarily constrained by lack of pertinent data on the underlying microstructure. Our objective was to analyze the response of carotid artery subjected to inflation/extension with phenomenological and microstructure-based candidate strain-energy functions (SEFs), according to species (rabbit vs. pig) and region (proximal vs. distal). Histological variations among… CONTINUE READING
