Arteries display a nonlinear anisotropic behavior dictated by the elastic properties and structural arrangement of its main constituents, elastin, collagen, and vascular smooth muscle. Elastin provides for structural integrity and for the compliance of the vessel at low pressure, whereas collagen gives the tensile resistance required at high pressures. Based on the model of Zulliger et al. (Zulliger MA, Rachev A, Stergiopulos N. Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 287: H1335-H1343, 2004), which… CONTINUE READING
