Various vasoactive agents were injected into the carotid artery of the rabbit in amounts with and without effect upon systemic arterial pressure while recording the pressure in the ipsilateral marginal ear vein. Levarterenol produced an evanescent small fall in pressure followed by a more prolonged rise above the control value. Methacholine produced only a rise in pressure. The discussion includes an analysis of the mechanisms of these pressure changes.

    Physical properties of an artery can be described in terms of stiffness, distensibility, and compliance. Changes in these properties can predict atherosclerosis disease, but it is necessary to identify an index that is independent of changes in blood pressure. We measured common carotid artery...

    Auscultation of the neck for detection of bruits over the carotid arteries has become a necessary part of any complete physical examination. Early detection of atherosclerotic occlusive disease in these vessels can play a major role in prevention of stroke. Such findings have previously been...

    To evaluate the relationships between arterial stiffness, disease activity and end-organ damage in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), non-invasive vascular assessments were made on 32 female SLE patients and 32 female normal controls. The patients had significantly increased brachial-ankle...
