Ocular biomechanics and biotransport.
The eye transduces light, and we usually do not think of it as a biomechanical structure. Yet it is actually a pressurized, thick-walled shell that has an internal and external musculature, aExpand

Factors influencing optic nerve head biomechanics.
PURPOSE The biomechanical environment within the optic nerve head (ONH) may play a role in retinal ganglion cell loss in glaucomatous optic neuropathy. This was a systematic analysis in which finiteExpand

Computational analysis of coupled blood-wall arterial LDL transport.
The transport of macromolecules, such as low density lipoproteins (LDLs), across the artery wall and their accumulation in the wall is a key step in atherogenesis. Our objective was to model fluidExpand

Hemodynamics in the mouse aortic arch as assessed by MRI, ultrasound, and numerical modeling.
Mice are widely used to study arterial disease in humans, and the pathogenesis of arterial diseases is known to be strongly influenced by hemodynamic factors. It is, therefore, of interest toExpand

Finite element modeling of optic nerve head biomechanics.
PURPOSE Biomechanical factors have been implicated in the development of glaucomatous optic neuropathy, particularly at the level of the lamina cribrosa. The goal of this study was to characterizeExpand

Effects of Cardiac Motion on Right Coronary Artery Hemodynamics
AbstractThe purpose of this work was to investigate the effects of physiologically realistic cardiac-induced motion on hemodynamics in human right coronary arteries. The blood flow patterns wereExpand

Effects of TGF-beta2 in perfused human eyes.
PURPOSE TGF-beta2 is known to be present at elevated levels in the aqueous humor of patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Studies have shown that TGF-beta2 influences cultured trabecularExpand

Deformation of the lamina cribrosa by elevated intraocular pressure.
The purpose of this study was to determine the mechanical response of the lamina cribrosa (LC) to elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) so as to identify possible mechanisms of optic nerve damage inExpand
