Atherosclerosis, a disease of large- and medium-size arteries, is the chief cause of death in the US and most of the western world. It is widely accepted that the focal nature of the disease in arterial bends, junctions, and bifurcations is directly related to locally abnormal hemodynamics, often labeled "disturbed flows." Employing the aorto-celiac junction of rabbits as a representative atherosclerotic model and considering other branching blood vessels with their distinctive input wave forms… CONTINUE READING
