Abstract

To interrelate in vivo wall shear stress, endothelial microfilament bundle formation, and atherosclerosis localization, we used a mild abdominal aortic stenosis in 11 beagles to produce a range of wall shear stresses above and below the constriction. Six of the beagles were fed standard animal chow supplemented with 5% cholesterol and 10% coconut oil. Wall shear stresses, endothelial microfilament bundles, and intimal plaque localization were assessed along the stenosed aorta. Shear stress was determined in vivo from the near-wall velocity profiles with a 20-MHz, 80-channel, multigate Doppler velocimeter. Content of the microfilament bundles was quantified by planimetry of transmission electron photomicrographs. After 6 weeks, mean shear stress was higher immediately upstream from the throat of the stenosis than at the proximal site (46.1±7.3 dynes/cm2 versus 24.0±6.2 dynes/cm2, p2, p
