BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to elucidate the relationship between the flow patterns and the preferred sites of the development of atherosclerotic lesions and cerebral aneurysms in the human ICA and MCA. METHODS Five isolated transparent arterial trees containing the ICA and MCA with a sufficient length of the carotid siphon were prepared from(More)
In the rich and long-standing literature on the flow-induced formation of oriented precursors to polymer crystallization, it is often asserted that the longest, most extended chains are the dominant molecular species in the "shish" of the "shish-kebab" formation. We performed a critical examination of this widely held view, using deuterium labeling to(More)
OBJECT The authors conducted a study to elucidate the relationship between the flow patterns and the formation of aneurysms at the bifurcation of the basilar artery (BA). METHODS Six isolated, transparent vertebrobasilar arterial systems were prepared from humans postmortem, and flow patterns and velocity distributions were studied in detail using flow(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the possible role of fluid mechanical factors in thromboembolism that occurs at a high rate in the human middle cerebral artery (MCA). METHODS Isolated transparent cerebral arterial trees containing the terminal bifurcation of the internal carotid artery (ICA), where the ICA bifurcated into the MCA and the anterior cerebral(More)
