Studies in small non-cartilaginous airways suggest that the cross sectional area of the airway wall (comprising the smooth muscle and mucosa) is unaltered during the contraction-relaxation cycle produced by bronchial provocation. In the present study we examined whether the wall area of large cartilaginous bronchi remained constant during bronchoconstriction produced by acetylcholine (ACh, 10(-4)-10(-2)M), and if not the effect of this on the narrowing of the bronchial lumen. Narrowing of the… CONTINUE READING
