|Abstract:|| We propose a mathematical model for the description of plaque progression in carotid arteries.
This is based on the coupling of a fluid-structure interaction problem, arising between blood and vessel wall,
and differential problems for the cellular evolution. A numerical model is also proposed. This is based on
the splitting of the coupled problem based on a suitable strategy to manage the multiscale-in-time
nature of the problem. We present some preliminary numerical results both in ideal and real scenarios.|
