Species-specific pulmonary arterial asymmetry determines species differences in regional pulmonary perfusion.

Abstract:

The functional significance of differences in pulmonary vascular branching and diameter asymmetry between the human and quadruped lung has not previously been addressed. To evaluate the contribution of branching asymmetry to observable species differences in blood flow gradients, computed distributions of blood flow were compared in structure-based models of the human and ovine pulmonary arteries. The models were derived using a combination of computed tomography and a volume-filling algorith...
