Fig. 1. Diagram of rat model. (A) Femoro-femoral arteriovenous fistula was performed by side to side anastomosis to increase laminar shear force. (B) Black silk ligation was done on the other side of femoral artery to make turbulent flow. Patent, but sluggish distal flow was checked by palpation. Assumed blood flow is demonstrated at the bottom of the figure (boxs: specimen harvesting area).
