The importance of prolonged functional stress of the nervous system in the development of lipoidosis in the aorta and myocardial lesions in rabbits
Lipoidosis of aorta with a thickening of the tunica intima of the coronary vessels and dystrophy of the cardiac muscle was seen to develop in prolonged functional stress of the nervous system (12–23 months) in rabbits which received food with or without cholesterol.
Lipoid deposition into the wall of aorta occurred with the cholesterol blood level equal to 35–70 mg%; however, the content of free cholesterol, β-lipoproteids, and neutral fats was found to be increased in the blood of experimental rabbits. The mentioned lesions in the aorta, the coronary vessels of the heart, and the cardiac muscle are the sequence of prolonged functional stress of the nervous system.
