Characteristics of blood vessels forming "sausages-on-a-string" patterns during hypertension.
387 - 393.
A phenomenon of alternate constrictions and dilatations in blood vessels has been studied for over 50 years. Recently, a theory has been presented involving a Rayleigh type instability. We analyze the model in terms of the lengths of the deformations in relation to the wall thickness, blood pressure and stress. Analytical and numerical results obtained are consistent with experimental data. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
