An assessment of intra-patient variability on observed relationships between wall shear stress and plaque progression in coronary arteries


BACKGROUND Wall shear stress (WSS) has been associated with sites of plaque localization and with changes in plaque composition in human coronary arteries. Different values have been suggested for categorizing WSS as low, physiologic or high; however, uncertainties in flow rates, both across subjects and within a given individual, can affect the… (More)
