Abstract

The results indicate that IVUS-based patient-specific FSI simulations for mapping the wall stresses, followed by analysis of the biomechanical risk factors, may be used as an additional diagnostic tool for clinicians to estimate the plaque burden and determine the proper treatment and intervention.
