The response of human aortic endothelial cells in a stenotic hemodynamic environment: effect of duration, magnitude, and spatial gradients in wall shear stress.


Inflammation plays a key role in the development and stability of coronary plaques. Endothelial cells alter their expression in response to wall shear stress (WSS). Straight/tubular and asymmetric stenosis models were designed to study the localized expression of atheroprone molecules and inflammatory markers due to the presence of the spatial wall shear… (More)
