The stress and strain in the vessel wall are important determinants of vascular physiology and pathophysiology. Vessels are constrained radially by the surrounding tissue. The hypothesis in this work is that the surrounding tissue takes up a considerable portion of the intravascular pressure and significantly reduces the wall strain and stress. Ten swine of either sex were used to test this hypothesis. An impedance catheter was inserted into the carotid or femoral artery, and after mechanical… CONTINUE READING
