PURPOSE This study aimed to relate the level of physical force applied to the arterial wall by atraumatic clamps to the degree of endothelial and wall damage. METHODS Sixteen sheep carotid and femoral arteries were each demarcated into four segments 1 cm apart (total 64 segments). Each segment was clamped for 15 min with a standard angled DeBakey vascular clamp. Four levels of force were generated by closing the clamp at three, four, five and six notches of closure. The extent of endothelial… CONTINUE READING
