Guinea pig ductus arteriosus. II - Irreversible closure after birth.
Author and Affiliation:
Fay, F. S.(Harvard University, Boston, Mass., United States)
Cooke, P. H.(Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., United States)
Abstract: To investigate the mechanism underlying irreversibility of ductal closure after birth, studies were undertaken to determine the exact time course for the onset of irreversible closure of the guinea pig ductus arteriosus. Parallel studies of the reactivity of ductal smooth muscle to oxygen and studies of the postpartum cellular changes within the vessel were also carried out.
