Treatments of Cardiovascular Diseases
Modeling and simulation of blood flows through reconstructed normal or diseased vascular segments, arterial grafts, and vessel segments with implanted medical devices have been carried out by many biomechanics teams to provide knowledge of flow behavior and applied stress fields. Such investigations are also aimed at optimizing surgical procedures or medical devices. Most of the studies have been carried out in idealized geometries. However, since about 10 years ago, computational domains have been determined by three-dimensional reconstruction of vessels and organs, the anatomy being assessed from medical imaging.1
