The effects of varying degrees of atherosclerotic plaque on vascular responsiveness in aortas of Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic (WHHL) rabbits and New Zealand White (normal cholesterolemic) rabbits were studied. Ring segments from the aortic arch and thoracic aorta were mounted in organ chambers for isometric tension recording and measurement of… CONTINUE READING
