Evaluation of differences in coronary plaque mechanical behavior in individuals with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
IVUS was used to assess coronary plaque characteristics in individuals with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus and it was shown that there is a significant change in coronary plaque area between systole and diastole, and this is a major determinant of coronary compliance.
Effect of passive myocardium on the compliance of porcine coronary arteries.
TLDR
It is concluded that myocardial tethering prevents collapse of large blood vessel under compression of porcine coronary arteries under compression.
Impact of age and hyperglycemia on the mechanical behavior of intact human coronary arteries: an ex vivo intravascular ultrasound study.
TLDR
Hyperglycemia and age independently influenced the distensibility of moderately atherosclerotic LAD coronary arteries, and the stiffening with age was overshadowed in the hyperglycemic group by as-yet-undetermined factors.
Influence of arterial wall-stenosis compliance on the coronary diagnostic parameters.
Relationship among coronary plaque compliance, coronary risk factors and tissue characteristics evaluated by integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound
TLDR
New findings that there was a significant correlation between mechanical properties and tissue characteristics of coronary arteries are provided and it is suggested that the EEMV compliance and the LV compliance were independent and the compliance was significantly impaired in the patients with DM and/or HTN.
Measurement of the uniaxial mechanical properties of healthy and atherosclerotic human coronary arteries.
Slow coronary flow may be a sign of diffuse atherosclerosis. Contribution of FFR and IVUS
TLDR
Investigating the epicardial resistance in relation with SCF by using fractional flow reserve (FFR) and intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) demonstrated the decreased FFR in the patients withSCF, attributed to increased resistance in the epicardsial coronary arteries due to diffuse atherosclerotic disease.
Effect of Arterial Wall-Stenosis Compliance on Coronary Diagnostic Parameters
TLDR
The present study found that, with an increase in stenosis severity, FFR decreased whereas CDP and LFC increased, and recently developed parameters: Pressure Drop Coefficient, Lesion Flow Coefficient and Hyperemic Stenosis Resistance Index (HSRv) increased.

Abnormal Epicardial Coronary Resistance in Patients With Diffuse Atherosclerosis but “Normal” Coronary Angiography
TLDR
Diffuse coronary atherosclerosis without focal stenosis at angiography causes a graded, continuous pressure fall along arterial length, which contributes to myocardial ischemia and has consequences for decision-making during percutaneous coronary interventions.
Assessment of coronary artery distensibility by intravascular ultrasound. Application of simultaneous measurements of luminal area and pressure.
TLDR
The results suggest that coronary distensibility is impaired in the coronary sites accompanying occult atherosclerosis, none of which can be detected by the conventional angiography.

Systemic Arterial Compliance is Decreased in Newly-Diagnosed Patients with Coronary Heart Disease: Implications for Prediction of Risk
TLDR
The results demonstrate the potential for repeatable, non-invasive methods of assessment of arterial mechanical properties to provide useful additional information for the overall assessment of an individual's cardiovascular risk.
Determinants of coronary remodeling in transplant coronary disease: a simultaneous intravascular ultrasound and Doppler flow study.
TLDR
Vessel remodeling in transplant vasculopathy is significantly greater in eccentric lesions than in concentric lesions, possibly due to greater coronary compliance and resistive vessel function.

Relation between coronary artery disease, aortic stiffness, and left ventricular structure in a population sample.
TLDR
It is concluded that aortic stiffness and left ventricular mass are increased in subjects newly diagnosed as having CAD, which might explain previously reported associations of an increased mortality, particularly from CAD, found among subjects with elevated pulse pressures.
Different effects of hypertension, atherosclerosis and hyperlipidaemia on arterial distensibility
TLDR
Hypertension is the predominant factor affecting the visco-elastic properties of large arteries and Arterial compliance is significantly altered only in extensive atherosclerosis.
