The paper examines the effects of water permeability on solid particle (platelet) adhesion and lipid transport through the wall of a blood conduit. Also tested is the capacity of external supports to reduce lipid infiltration into venous grafts. The results indicate that water permeability not only facilitates particle adhesion, but also affects the spatial distribution of the adhesion. The presence of filtration flow leads to a concentration polarisation of atherogenic lipids at the blood/wall… CONTINUE READING
