“…In the present study IMT of the femoral artery correlated with Gensini score (r ¼ 0.365) more strongly than common carotid, internal carotid or carotid bulb IMT. Vascular curvature existing at the femoral site and coronary arteries constitute a geometric risk factor for atherosclerosis at the femoral site and coronary arteries [18,19]. This finding is in accordance with previous report [8] showing that femoral IMT predicted the presence and the extent of coronary calcium, a known marker of coronary atherosclerosis.…”

“…6,34,42,44,50,53 Various methods and quantification metrics have been proposed to characterize the aforementioned types of in vivo arterial deformations. 5,7,9,10,14,20,28,29,33,[41][42][43][44]49,50,53 For example, the ''distance factor,'' which is defined as the ratio between the vessel path length and the distance between two endpoints, is a simple metric commonly used to measure nonlinearity of vessels, i.e., tortuosity. 7,53 This metric lumps 3D information into a one-dimensional (1D) metric and hence does not clearly differentiate local curvature changes, especially when the vessel maintains the same distance factor.…”

“…2,40 However, this can be explained by the lower distensibility of the muscular femoral arteries which was modeled as opposed to greater distensibility of large elastic arteries such as aortic and carotid. 25,42,53 It has been widely accepted that WSS and related parameters such as WSSTG and OSI are important factors in the development of atherosclerosis on the femoral artery, 22,46,47,51 and the carotid artery. 1,2,16,26 Ku and colleagues 26 reported low OSI in addition to low WSS enhanced the development of plaques.…”
