Induction of stress fibres and intercellular gaps in human vascular endothelium by shock-waves

Seidl, M. ; Steinbach, P. ; Wörle, K. ; Hofstädter, Ferdinand


Human umbilical cords were exposed to high amplitude focussed ultrasonic pulses with focal energy densities 0.6 and 0.4 mJ mm-2. The endothelium of the exposed vessel (vein) was examined by means of confocal laser scanning microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The degree of tissue change ranged from the induction of stress fibres and intercellular gaps to the complete detachment of ...
