Viscoelastic Deterioration of the Carotid Artery Vascular Wall is a Possible Predictor of Coronary Artery Disease.


AIM The viscoelastic properties of the artery are known to be altered in patients with vascular diseases. However, few studies have evaluated the viscoelasticity of the vascular wall in humans. We sought to investigate the degree of viscoelastic deterioration of the carotid artery and assess its clinical implications. METHODS Between January 2011 and June… (More)
