Grahic Jump Location
Principal stress distribution within the vicinity of the endarterectomy plaque fibrous cap in the finite element model for specimen 1. Figure 1(a) shows the original histologic configuration, while Fig. 1(b) shows the altered histologic constituency. (FC = fibrous cap, NC = necrotic core, Ca = calcification, M = surrounding media).
