The site opposite an end-to-side anastomosis, resulting from femoral bypass surgery, and the carotid sinus are two regions well known to be prone to fibrous intimal hyperplasia or atherogenesis, respectively. The blood flow at these two sites features a stagnation point, which oscillates in strength and position. Mathematical models are used to determine some of the features of such a flow; in particular, the mean wall shear stress is calculated. The positional oscillations cause a significant… CONTINUE READING
