The Permeability of Excised Arteries and Other Tissues to Serum Lipid
Excised arterial tissue is shown to differ from other excised tissues by its property of retaining fractions of serum lipids that are transfiltered under pressure in the form of zonal deposits at the elastic tissue membranes. The mode of deposition of artificially produced lipid accumulations and spontaneously formed ones is probably very similar. Various factors that influence the deposition of lipid in excised arteries are examined in detail. The most important of these prove to be the structural peculiarities of arterial tissue and the concentration of lipid in the serum.
