Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular complications including atherosclerosis. The close linkage between LVH and carotid atherosclerosis has been the focus of much research. However, the underlying mechanism linking the two conditions is not fully understood. Low wall shear stress contributes to intimal thickening and atherosclerosis development as a local mechanism. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between wall shear stress… CONTINUE READING
