- •ESS features (i.e. low magnitude and marked circum. heterogeneity) are associated with de novo eccentric plaque formation.
- •Worsening of plaque eccentricity in diseased regions presents in areas with both low ESS and large plaque burden.
- •The hemodynamic milieu is critical for eccentric coronary plaque formation in both early and advanced disease stages.
