Biomechanical Remodeling of the Chronically Obstructed Guinea Pig Small Intestine
TLDR
The morphologic and biomechanical remodeling likely influence the function of the intestine affected by partial obstructed intestine and strong correlation was found between the collagen content and the elastic modulus at stress levels of 70 kPa stress and 10 k Pa stress suggesting that the alteration of collagen has great impact on the mechanical remodeling.
Biomechanical remodelling of obstructed guinea pig jejunum.
Morphometric characteristics of the small and large intestines of Mus musculus during postnatal development.
TLDR
The greatest changes in the structure and size of the small and large intestines of mice occurred in the weaning period, during this period these two segments of intestine grew faster than the rest of the body and reached adult proportions.
Mechanical behavior of colonic anastomosis in experimental settings as a measure of wound repair and tissue integrity.
TLDR
This experimental model provides an excellent method of measuring anastomotic strength and provides an accurate way of measuring wound repair, despite the relative small number of specimens used.
Biomechanical changes in oxazolone-induced colitis in BALB/C mice.
Number 10 / 48 Possible role of differential growth in airway wall remodeling in asthma by
TLDR
It is demonstrated that differential growth can have a dramatic impact on mucosal folding, in particular on the critical pressure needed to induce folding, the buckling pattern, as well as airway narrowing.
Differential biomechanical properties of mouse distal colon and rectum innervated by the splanchnic and pelvic afferents.
TLDR
The results reveal a progressive increase in tissue compliance and prestress from colonic to rectal segments, which supports prior electrophysiological findings of distinct mechanical neural encodings by afferents in the lumbar splanchnic nerves and pelvic nerves that dominate colonic and rectal innervations.

Morphometric and Biomechanical Intestinal Remodeling Induced by Fasting in Rats
TLDR
Significant biomechanical and structural remodeling occurred in the small intestine during fasting for up to one week, and it can be predicted that the smooth muscle contractile function will also change.
Morphological properties and residual strain along the small intestine in rats.
TLDR
Axial variation in morphometric properties and residual strains were found in the small intestine and indicates that the zero-stress state must be considered in future biomechanical studies in the gastrointestinal tract.
Morphology and stress-strain properties along the small intestine in the rat.
TLDR
Large morphometric variations were found along the small intestine with an increase in the outer circumferential length and luminal area and a decrease in wall thickness in distal direction and the zero-stress state must be considered in future biomechanical studies in the gastrointestinal tract.
Biomechanical and morphometric intestinal remodelling during experimental diabetes in rats
TLDR
It was found that the circumferential and longitudinal stiffness of the intestinal wall increased with the duration of diabetes, and morphological and biomechanical remodelling of the small intestine occurred during the development of diabetes.
The effect of age on residual strain in the rat aorta.
TLDR
In the abdominal aorta, a strong correlation between opening angle and wall thickness relative to midwall radius (h/R) was seen; whereas in the thoracic segment, in which no increase in h/R with age occurred, no such relationship was found.
Left ventricular geometric remodeling and residual stress in the rat heart.
Theoretical considerations and observations of residual stress suggest that geometric remodeling in the heart may also alter residual stress and strain. We investigated whether changes in left
Histomorphometry and Strain Distribution in Pig Duodenum with Reference to Zero-Stress State
TLDR
The large circumferential residual strains must be taken into account in the study of physiological problems, in which the stresses and strains are important, eg, the bolus transport function.
Mechanical Properties and Collagen Content Differ Between Isolated Guinea Pig Duodenum, Jejunum, and Distal Ileum
TLDR
An association was found between the collagen content and the incremental elastic modulus (stiffness) at a stress level of 70 kPa (P <0.05) and the steady-state values of wall thickness, internal radius, and applied pressure.
Effect of age and sex on residual stress in the aorta.
TLDR
The degree of opening in rings removed from six positions along aortae obtained at autopsy from 30 subjects aged between 3 months and 87 years showed an overall increase along the aorta away from the heart and the opening angle increased with age and was higher in vessels with visible atheroma.
