To ascertain whether the relative invariance of the pressure drop along the arterial cascade--from the aortic arch down to include the saphenous artery--during increases of saphenous outflow (Khayutin et al. 1993), is determined mainly by dilation of the latter, and to discover whether this invariability is a manifestation of endothelium-mediated… CONTINUE READING
