Accurate characterisation of the mechanical properties of human atherosclerotic plaque is important for our understanding of the role of vascular mechanics in the development and treatment of atherosclerosis. The majority of previous studies investigating the mechanical properties of human plaque are based on tests of plaque tissue removed following(More)
It has been hypothesised that the stress distribution within the arterial wall may provide an indicator of atherosclerotic plaque rupture. This study presents an automated method for the generation of finite element models of the carotid bifurcation from in vivo computerised tomographic angiography. Models generated using this method have been used to(More)
