—We use a collection of Python programs for numerical simulation of liver perfusion. We have an application for semi-automatic generation of a finite element mesh of the human liver from computed tomography scans and for reconstruction of the liver vascular structure. When the real vascular trees can not be obtained from the CT data we generate artificial(More)
Considering the fact that hemodynamics plays an important role in the patency and overall performance of implanted bypass grafts, this work presents a numerical investigation of pulsatile non-Newtonian blood flow in three different patient-specific aorto-coronary bypasses. The three bypass models are distinguished from each other by the number of distal(More)
The paper deals with modeling the liver perfusion intended to improve quantitative analysis of the tissue scans provided by the contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT). For this purpose, we developed a model of dynamic transport of the contrast fluid through the hierarchies of the perfusion trees. Conceptually, computed time-space distributions of the(More)
The development of intimal hyperplasia at the distal anastomosis is one of the reasons for late failure of implanted bypass grafts. Beside the surgery injury, the non-uniform hemodynamics is hypothesized to be the main triggering factor in the gradual patency loss leading to the graft stenosis. Therefore, a better understanding of bypass flow has become one(More)
