Table 1 Baseline values and ranges of the geometric features used in computational models

From: Effects of intima stiffness and plaque morphology on peak cap stress

Geometric feature Baseline Value Value Range (:Increment)
Lumen radius 1.25 mm -
Cap thickness 0.05 mm 0.05 - 0.25 (:0.05) mm
Necrotic core thickness 1.20 mm 0.60 - 1.40 (:0.2) mm
Necrotic core angle 30° 10° - 40° (:10°)
Thickness of intima layer behind the necrotic core 0.50 mm 0.30 - 0.70 (:0.1) mm
Media thickness 0.25 mm 0.05 - 0.25 (:0.05) mm
Adventitia thickness 0.15 mm 0.10 - 0.20 (:0.05) mm
  1. Thickness of all sections but the media was altered uniformly. For the media section, the values are the thickness values at the location of media regression.
