Chronic Experimental Hypertension in Dogs after Constriction of Brachiocephalic and Left Subclavian Arteries
In summary, the studies suggest that:
(1) Simultaneous and controlled constriction of the brachiocephalic and left subclavian arteries resulted in chronic femoral hypertension in seven dogs.
(2) This hypertension is associated heniodynamically with an increase in cardiac index due mainly to an increased stroke volume.
(3) The suggestion is made that the initiating mechanism for this type of experimental hypertension is a chronic decrease in endosinal pulse pressure.
Some of these studies were done in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Physiology by A. K. Mandal.
