ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the influence of arterial sizes on arterial occlusions. He considers the explanation presented by S. Giannopoulos and colleagues that supports claims regarding the vulnerability of smaller arteries to occlusions. However, he believes that size alone cannot explain the cause. He claims that answers may be derived from the interaction between blood pressure, blood constituents, and the rheology and physics of blood flow at different arterial locations.
