Initiation of renal atherosclerosis occurs primarily at the caudal region of the renal artery ostium. To date, no mechanism for initiation of atherosclerosis at this site has been substantiated. Herein, we identify a renal artery flow diverter on the caudal wall of the renal artery ostium that directs flow into the renal artery and selectively retains LDL, an initial step in atherosclerosis. High-resolution ultrasound revealed the generation of flow eddies by the caudal diverter in vivo… CONTINUE READING
