Effect of Fluid Shear Stress on the Permeability of the Arterial Endothelium

Abstract

The localization of atherosclerotic lesions is due, in part, to regional variations in the permeability of arterial endothelium to macromolecules. In turn, endothelial permeability may be influenced by fluid shear stresses. The spatial variation in endothelial permeability is reviewed and evidence for shear stress dependence upon permeability is presented… (More)
