Abstract

The measurement of the mechanical and transport properties of pulsing arterial walls was presented. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to measure arterial diameter before, during and after the pulse cycle in order to determine whether pulsatile pressure caused a transient increase in hydraulic conductance or a vasodilation. The results showed that at the onset of pulsation, transmural convection increased and then subsequently decreased.
