OBJECTIVES Viscous and inertial components contribute to arterial distensibility and compliance in vitro. The purpose of our study was to determine whether this phenomenon is of relevance in vivo, namely, whether arterial compliance is altered by an increase in heart rate. DESIGN Arterial diameter was assessed by an echo-Doppler device in a common carotid and femoral artery, namely, in a large elastic and a muscle artery. The studies were performed in 12-week-old pentobarbitone-anaesthetized… CONTINUE READING
