"Experimental and diagnostic procedures like distension of a balloon catheter, bougie, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy can induce shear deformation in the esophageal wall," researchers in Denmark wrote. "However, the shear modulus of the esophagus is yet unknown.
"The aim of this study was to determine the esophageal shear modulus and its dependence on the circumferential and longitudinal stresses and strains in the rat."
J. Yang and colleagues, Aalborg Hospital, explained "The constitutive equation including the shear deformation based on a pseudo-strain-energy...
