Abstract

A study was made to show how blood shear regulates the shape of a neointima-like tissue around a polymer micro-cylinder implanted in the rat vena cava through the vessel center with its axis perpendicular to blood flow. Results suggest that blood shear stress regulates the shape of the neointima-like structure. The formation of a streamlined neointimal structure is possibly to reduce drag due to vortex blood flow.
