Abstract

Knowledge of mechanical properties of living arteries is important to understand vascular function inarterial pathologies and different treatments. We have developed an ex vivo model in which a porcinecoronary artery can be kept at physiological circumstances, while enabling measurement of itsmechanical behavior. Arterial mechanical behavior was determined for segments of the porcine leftanterior descending coronary artery (LAD) during dynamic loading at different axial strains. Also, thephysiological axial strain of the LAD was determined, based on the hypothesis that the in vivo axialstrain of an artery is the strain at which the axial force is relatively insensitive to changes in pressure
