Wall shear stress (WSS) has been investigated as a potential prospective marker to identify rapidly progressing coronary artery disease (CAD) and potential for lesions to acquire vulnerable characteristics. Previous investigations, however, are limited by a lack of understanding of the focal association between WSS and CAD progression (i.e., data are(More)
Background: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are local dilatations of the infrarenal aorta. If left untreated they may rupture and lead to death. One form of treatment is the minimally invasive insertion of a stent-graft into the aneurysm. Despite this effective treatment aneurysms may occasionally continue to expand and this may eventually result in(More)

BACKGROUND Wall shear stress (WSS) has been associated with sites of plaque localization and with changes in plaque composition in human coronary arteries. Different values have been suggested for categorizing WSS as low, physiologic or high; however, uncertainties in flow rates, both across subjects and within a given individual, can affect the(More)
There has been a substantial increase in Multimorbidity, worldwide. Extensive empirical research has found that General Practitioners (GPs) often feel overwhelmed when dealing with such patients [1]. While clinical decision support systems (CDSS) are effective at reducing clinical decision errors and improving healthcare processes across diverse settings(More)
BACKGROUND We hypothesized that nebivolol, a β-blocker with nitric oxide-mediated activity, compared with atenolol, a β-blocker without such activity, would decrease oxidative stress and improve the effects of endothelial dysfunction and wall shear stress (WSS), thereby reducing atherosclerosis progression and vulnerability in patients with nonobstructive(More)
