BACKGROUND Knowledge of the adaptive mechanisms of structure and function of coronary arteries in response to physical stress is important in human health and disease. OBJECTIVE To gain a better understanding of the adaptive mechanisms of morphology in the zero-stress state of the coronary arteries in a porcine model of hypertension and flow overload. METHODS The effects of simultaneous increases in pressure and flow were examined by studying the left anterior decending (LAD) artery in… CONTINUE READING
