Ring segments of extralobar and intralobar canine pulmonary arteries were used in vitro to study their frequency-dependent viscoelastic properties. Measurements of force in response to sinusoidal perturbations of length were made over the frequency range of 0.002-10 Hz. These measurements were made under three conditions: 1) passive smooth muscle at a physiological value of wall circumference (passive), 2) active smooth muscle at the same circumference (active), and 3) passive smooth muscle at… CONTINUE READING
