Coronary atherosclerotic plaques are frequently focal lesions that have variable rates of progression. Wall shear stresses (WSS) create a number of responses in endothelial cells that can lead to the localization and progression of these lesions, and in vivo coronary segments with low WSS have been found to develop greater plaque progression than segments of higher WSS.
