Abstract

Average wall shear-stress (AWSS), average wall shear-stress gradient (AWSSG), oscillatory shear index (OSI) and relative residence time (RRT) are believed to predict areas vulnerable to plaque formation in the coronary arteries. Our aim was to analyze the correlation of these parameters in patients' vessels before the onset of atherosclerosis to the specific plaque sites thereafter, and to compare the parameters' sensitivity and positive predictive value.
