Arterial wall response to ex vivo exposure to oscillatory shear stress.

The aim of this study was to analyze the arterial wall response to plaque-prone hemodynamic environments, known to occur mainly in areas of arterial trees such as bifurcations and branching points. In these areas, the vasculature is exposed to cyclically reversing flow that induces an endothelial dysfunction predisposing thus arteries to local development of atherosclerotic plaques.
