This study was to implement fluid structure interaction (FSI) method in order to investigate the effect of stenosis eccentricity on the recirculation flow, pressure drop and wall shear stress (WSS) in an atherosclerotic model of a left coronary artery with left anterior descending (LAD) and left circumflex (LCX) branches. The linear regression analysis results showed a positive correlation between WSS and stenosis eccentricity. The results also showed that the stenosis eccentricity plays a prominent role in determining the pressure drop and recirculation area, while having relatively unnoticeable effects on WSS.
