Counteracting effect of head-up tilt on increased femoral venous compliance after simulated weightlessness in rabbits

BACKGROUND: The increased femoral venous compliance is one of the factors of orthostatic intolerance after space flight. The purpose of this study was to observe the effect of daily head-up tilt (HUT) on stress-strain relationship of femoral vein during simulated weightlessness in rabbits
