Department of Bioengineering, University of Colorado, Denver, CO 80045, USA
J Biomech Eng 134:054501. 2012..The method allowed faster testing of tissues of multiple diameters, while removing the effect of end conditions. The PD method will be of further utility in continued study of tissue mechanics in pulmonary hypertension studies...
- Linked opening angle and histological and mechanical aspects of the proximal pulmonary arteries of healthy and pulmonary hypertensive rats and calvesLian Tian
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado, USA
Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 301:H1810-8. 2011..We conclude that the arterial remodeling in rat and calf proximal PAs is different and the change of opening angle can be linked to the change of the arterial histological structure and mechanics...
