Knowledge of the transmural stress and stretch fields in esophageal wall is necessary to quantify growth and remodeling, and the response to mechanically based clinical interventions or traumatic injury, but there are currently conflicting reports on this issue and the mechanical properties of intact esophagus have not been rigorously addressed. This paper offers multiaxial data on rabbit esophagus, warranted for proper identification of the 3D mechanical properties. The Fung-type strain-energy… CONTINUE READING
