Analytical models of atherosclerosis

Analytical models of atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis 159(1): 1-7

Atherosclerosis is responsible for apprxeq50% of all mortalities in the USA, Europe, and Japan. An innovative approach for investigating atherosclerotic lesions using a thermodynamic model and a boundary value model and an analytical example of a human abdominal aorta vessel with an initial lesion are presented in the paper. Analytical results given by both models propose that increased transient boundary layer thickness and reduced surface energy of adhesion in regions of the arterial branch points play crucial roles in initial lesion formation. This study also improves the understanding of atherosclerotic mechanisms and helps to interpret clinical and experimental results.
