Atherosclerotic plaques’ downstream spread linked to low shear stress

This insight comes from a study of fluid dynamics in the arteries of people being treated for coronary artery disease. The results are being presented Tuesday, Nov. 15 at the… Atherosclerotic plaques’ downstream spread linked to low shear stress
