How can we improve the understanding of arterial endofibrosis?

Jérôme Jansen

High level endurance sports may lead to a vascular pathology called endofibrosis. It induces an arterial wall thickening and reduction of the artery lumen caliber. Cyclists are impacted mostly, but other athletes may be vulnerable like rowers, triathletes, or rugby players [1,2]. Contrary to all other vascular pathologies, endofibrosis affects young athletes, from 19 years old [2].
In collaboration with Lyon’s Civil Hospices, we develop a numerical modeling of arterial growth under endofibrosis.
