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)
BACKGROUND Three-dimensional design simulations of coronary metallic stents utilizing mathematical and computational algorithms have emerged as important tools for understanding biomechanical stent properties, predicting the interaction of the implanted platform with the adjacent tissue, and informing stent design enhancements. Herein, we demonstrate the(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)
