Nearly all soft tissues, among which the vascular tissue is included, present a certain degree of viscoelastic response. This behaviour may be attributed in part to fluid transport within the solid matrix, and to the friction between its fluid and solid constituents. After being preconditioned, the tissue displays highly repetitive behaviour, so that it can be considered pseudo-elastic, that is, elastic but behaving differently in loading and unloading. Because of this reason, very few constitutive laws accounting for the viscoelastic behaviour of the tissue have been developed. Nevertheless, the consideration of this inelastic effect is of crucial importance in surgeries-like vascular angioplasty-where the mentioned preconditioning cannot be considered since non-physiological deformation is applied on the vessel which, in addition, can cause damage to the tissue. A new constitutive formulation considering the particular features of the vascular tissue, such as anisotropy, together with these two inelastic phenomena is presented here and used to fit experimental stress-stretch curves from simple tension loading-unloading tests and relaxation test on porcine and ovine vascular samples.
