The purpose of this study is to measure the transmural pressure-cross sectional area relation of micro tubes (240 μm diameter) and to compare the measured perfusion pressure-flow relation with the pressure-flow relation calculated from the experimental pressure-cross sectional area relation. The microtubes are made by dipping a glass mould in a latex… CONTINUE READING
