pH Heterogeneity of human and rabbit atherosclerotic plaques; a new insight into detection of vulnerable plaque.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Atherosclerotic plaques are heterogeneous with respect to inflammation, calcification, vascularity, oxygen, and temperature. We hypothesized that they also vary in pH and measured pH in living human carotid endarterectomized atherosclerotic plaques (CEA), Watanabe heritable hyperlipidemic (WHHL) rabbit aortas and human umbilical arteries (HUA… (More)
