Abstract

In the past five years several laboratories have begun work to try to demonstrate what flow factors are involved in the localization of atherosclerotic lesions. If flow is important, then to determine its effect one must use an animal with relatively constant flow throughout the experimental period. For this reason we chose to use rabbits whose cardiac output does not alter appreciably if they remain in cages.
