|Title:||Vascular hemodynamics of the carotid bifurcation and its relation to arterial disease||Authors:||Anayiotos, Andreas
|Keywords:||Hemodynamics;Arterial disease;Atherosclerosis||Category:||Mechanical Engineering||Field:||Engineering and Technology||Issue Date:||1-Oct-2013||Publisher:||Springer-Verlag London||Source:||Ultrasound and Carotid Bifurcation Atherosclerosis, 2013, Pages 41-51||metadata.dc.doi:||10.1007/978-1-84882-688-5_3||Abstract:||The hemodynamic hypothesis of atherosclerosis postulates that blood flow characteristics are a synergistic factor in the development of the disease in large arteries. This was first reported in 1968 by Fry1 who postulated that acute vascular endothelial damage is associated with increased blood velocity gradients and wall shear stress (WSS).||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9882||ISBN:||978-1-84882-687-8||Rights:||© 2012 Springer-Verlag London Limited.||Type:||Book Chapter|
