English term or phrase: shoulder regions of coronary artery lesions
ciao a tutti e buona domenica.
non riesco a capire il senso di questa frase. secondo me dovrebe essere "coronary artery lesions of the shoulder regions" o sto prendendo un abbaglio?
ecco il contesto:
Infiltrating macrophages and neutrophils participate in the transformation of stable coronary artery plaques to unstable lesions with a thin fibrous cap with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and unstable angina (UA) than in patients with stable CAD. Macrophages secrete matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and metal-independent MPO, which degrade the collagen layer that protects atheromas from erosion or abrupt rupture. As a result, plaques that have been highly infiltrated with macrophages have a thin fibrous cap and are vulnerable to erosion or rupture, precipitating events to ACS. This is particularly true in the ***shoulder regions of coronary artery lesions*** where the shear stresses of arterial blood are highest.

Explanation:
Secondo me non si tratta di un errore:
In questo caso, per "shoulder region" si intende il margine laterale/esterno della placca aterosclerotica (e ci sono tantissimi riferimenti per "shoulder region of the plaque" su web). Non si tratta dunque di una regione "anatomica".
