Evidence from diverse investigations suggests that arterial growth and remodeling correlates well with changes in mechanical stresses from their homeostatic values. Ultimately, therefore, there is a need for a comprehensive theory that accounts for changes in the 3-D distribution of stress within the arterial wall, including residual stress, and its relation to the mechanisms of mechanotransduction. Here, however, we consider a simpler theory that allows competing hypotheses to be tested easily… CONTINUE READING
