Table 1 Changes of shear stress in low and undisturbed regions between two groups detected by microultrasound imaging measurement before and after surgery (3 d)

From: Inhibition of c-Jun N-Terminal Kinase Attenuates Low Shear Stress-Induced Atherogenesis in Apolipoprotein E-Deficient Mice

  Undist (n = 8) Low (n = 8)
Vmax (cm/s) 28.76 ± 7.12 3.84 ± 0.47
Ds (cm) 0.42 ± 0.11 0.45 ± 0.09
SS (dyn/cm2) 36.61 ± 9.37 4.56 ± 1.03a
  1. Vmax, maximum velocity of carotid artery; Ds, end-systolic diameters of carotid artery; SS, shear stress of carotid artery, SS = 4 µVmax/Ds; μ, blood viscosity of mice; undist, undisturbed shear stress; low, low shear stress. Data are means ± SD. aP < 0.05 comparing low with undisturbed by paired Student t test.
