Local hemodynamics and its impact on the development of cardiovascular disease and the blood itself have gained increasing attention during the last decades. Regions with low and/or oscillatory Wall Shear Stress (WSS) have been correlated with increased risk for development of atherosclerosis ; and turbulence in the cardio vascular system is suggested to increase the risk for hemolysis as well as platelet activation and thrombus formation [2, 3]. Furthermore, turbulent flows are inherently oscillatory with large spatial as well as temporal fluctuation, and hence possibly a risk for atherosclerosis development per se.
