Plaque rupture plays a role in the majority of acute coronary syndromes. Rupture has usually been associated with stress concentrations, which are mainly affected by the plaque geometry and the tissue properties. The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of morphology on the risk of plaque rupture, including the main geometrical factors, and to assess the role of circumferential and axial residual stresses by means of a parametric 3D finite element model. For this purpose, a 3D… CONTINUE READING
