Dramatic decrease of aortic longitudinal elastic strength in a rat model of aortic dissection.

Abstract

BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate thoracic aortic longitudinal elastic strength in a rat model of aortic dissection (AD). METHODS Young Sprague Dawley rats were fed 0.25% β-aminopropionitrile (BAPN). Biomechanical and biochemistry properties of the aorta were analyzed. Elasticity modulus, maximum stretching length, draw ratio, maximum load, maximum… (More)
