However, the effects of chronic hypoxia on vascular stiffening in all three proximal conduit vessels of rats have, to our knowledge, not been previously investigated.
The objective of this study, therefore, is to compare the passive mechanical properties of the proximal pulmonary arteries in chronically hypoxic rats to those of control animals housed at ambient conditions to determine the extent to which hypoxic pulmonary hypertension causes stiffening of the conduit vessels. Our use of a bubble inflation technique, which we have previously reported as useful in the study of passive mechanical properties (15), is one that is not limited by the length or curvature of the material.
