Mechanical properties of the peripheral pulmonary parenchyma of freshly excised hamster lung tissue were examined to evaluate determinants of displacement-tension relationships with regard to structural constituents of the alveolar wall. A tissue segment measuring 50 x 50 x 400-600 microns and consisting mostly of the alveolar wall was prepared from the… CONTINUE READING
