Spatial correlation between patterns of wall permeability and patterns of multidirectional disturbed blood flow in rabbit aorta

      Atherosclerotic lesions have a characteristic spatial distribution within the arterial system, particularly near branches. This distribution has been attributed to elevated uptake of plasma macromolecules by the wall, and to pro-atherogenic influences of disturbed blood flow. We investigated whether there is a significant association of elevated permeability with a novel index of multidirectional disturbed flow termed transverse WSS (transWSS).
