... the anterior quadrant of nine consecutive aortic levels were photographed to obtain the zero-stress state for the intact wall. The strips were then dissected into layers that were also photographed to obtain their zero-stress state. Changes in layer-specific opening angle, residual stretches, and thickness...

... of its actual zero-stress state. The aim of this study was thus to acquire hitherto unreported quantitative knowledge of axial opening angle and residual stretches in different segments and quadrants of the human aorta according to age and gender. Twenty-three aortas were harvested during autopsy from...

... at the intima. In hypertension, the compensatory increase in opening angle is thought to maintain a uniform stress distribution. We have recently shown that the circumferential stress at adventitia may exceed that at intima at physiological loading due to large opening angle ( O A ) in normal porcine coronary...

...Chong Wang; Xiaomei Guo; Ghassan S. Kassab The stress distribution in the vessel wall has an important bearing on vascular function in health and disease. We studied the relationship between the transmural stress distribution and the opening angle (OA) to determine the stress gradient...
