Relatively little attention has been paid to the venous system and valves from a cardiovascular engineering perspective up to now. Given the involvement of venous valve haemodynamics in the development of deep vein thrombosis this is an area that needs more detailed investigation and close collaboration between clinicians and cardiovascular engineers. The(More)
Almost 3% of people in the Western world will suffer from a venous disease at some time in their lives, but as yet there are very few effective treatments for the venous system. When the valves become incompetent, they allow backflow and subsequent pooling of blood in the lower extremities. Current clinical therapies for the elimination of deep reflux are(More)
This paper describes the use of diverse software tools in cardiovascular applications. These tools were primarily developed in the field of engineering and the applications presented push the boundaries of the software to address events related to venous and arterial valve closure, exploration of dynamic boundary conditions or the inclusion of multi-scale(More)
