Title: Computational hemodynamics analysis in realistic 3D geometries of human coronary atherosclerosis
Published In: WIT Transactions on Biomedicine and Health, Volume 13, pp: 93-102
Description: The present investigation concentrates on one particular problem related to fluid mechanics: namely, the description of disturbed flow fields in the coronary atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis creating a constriction can significantly alter the local blood flow dynamics. From a biological aspect, the changes that take place in the flow have a profound effect on the structure and function of the arterial wall and the development of the disease. The purpose of this paper was to non-invasively assess hemodynamic parameters, such as mass flow, wall shear stress, and wall pressure, with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in coronary arteriosclerosis using patient-specific data from computed tomography (CT) angiography.
