Relation between plaque type, plaque thickness, blood shear stress, and plaque stress in coronary arteries assessed by X-ray angiography and intravascular ultrasound.

Abstract

PURPOSE Atheromatic plaque progression is affected, among others phenomena, by biomechanical, biochemical, and physiological factors. In this paper, the authors introduce a novel framework able to provide both morphological (vessel radius, plaque thickness, and type) and biomechanical (wall shear stress and Von Mises stress) indices of coronary arteries… (More)
