Association between arterial bifurcation anatomy and angiographic plaque ulceration among 4,627 carotid stenoses.
Stability of atheromatous plaques is influenced by local mechanical and haemodynamic factors, such as plaque motion and shear stress. However, although blood vessel anatomy is an important determinant of haemodynamics, particularly at bifurcations, there have been no previous clinical studies of the association between arterial anatomy and plaque ulceration. We therefore studied arterial anatomy and plaque ulceration using angiograms of 4,627 carotid bifurcations with atheromatous disease fro...Expand abstract
