ABSTRACT
The relation between lateral intravascular pressure and vessel radius was measured in vivo in the common femoral artery of 10 human subjects. The circumferential strain was very small in all cases. The greatest change in cross-sectional area during systole was 3.0 per cent of the end diastolic area. The longitudinal strain was also obtained in 6 subjects and was found to be in the order of 1.0 per cent of the end diastolic vessel length.

    Introduction. The lateral circumflex femoral artery usually originates from the lateral side of the initial part of the deep femoral artery, or less frequently from the femoral artery. If it is a branch of the femoral artery, it arises directly above the point of origin of the deep femoral...

    Different characteristic points used for the evaluation of pulse wave velocity (PWV) give significantly different results. Hence, the accuracy of using these points is questionable. There is need for quantitative comparison of different techniques to determine PWV. Previous studies aimed at...
