Example sentences for: distensibility

How can you use “distensibility” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Iron is necessary in the synthesis of collagen [ 39 ] , and collagen content has been shown to be reduced in iron deficient hearts [ 40 ] . If this is similarly true for arteries in iron deficient animals, a significant increase in distensibility would result, altering the normal pressure-volume relationship.

  • Second, abdominal aortas from iron deficient rats display not only increased diameters, but also significant increases in distensibility.

  • A decrease in collagen production with iron deficiency could account for this enhanced distensibility.

  • Aortic distensibility, the increase in external diameter during stepwise internal pressure increases, is also shown in figure 6. There is a significant group difference (*, p = 0.0101) with the iron deficient aortas more compliant than the controls overall.

  • The measurement of plasma atrial natriuretic peptide indicated that these changes were due to the gravitational effects on the distensibility of the right heart.
