BACKGROUND This study was done to assess how local changes in vessel size, together with plaque load, determine luminal narrowing in atherosclerotic arteries. Fifty-one human femoral arteries were analyzed: 32 postmortem and 19 in vivo by 30-MHz intravascular ultrasound. METHODS AND RESULTS Histological and intravascular ultrasound cross sections were examined every 0.5 cm over an arterial segment 10 to 15 cm long. In each cross section we measured the lumen area and the area circumscribed by… CONTINUE READING
