Thoracic aortic wall shear stress atlases in patients with bicuspid aortic valves


Background Wall shear stress (WSS) may be associated with the onset and development of aortopathy in the presence of bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) [Michelena, JAMA (2011)]. The use of ‘aortic atlases’ of 3D WSS vectors allows for systematic analysis of WSS differences between large patient cohorts. In this study, a comparison is performed between WSS atlases… (More)
