Elevated arterial wall permeability may cause vulnerable plaque formation in mice

      Disease progression in the apoE-/- mouse carotid artery can be controlled with a tapered flow-modifying cuff: vulnerable and stable plaques develop at the upstream (wide) and downstream (narrow) cuff margins respectively. We investigated wall permeability and mechanical stresses in cuffed wild-type mice.
