BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion injury is a major factor in graft quality and subsequent function in the transplantation setting. We hypothesize that the process of RNA interference may be used to "engineer" a graft to suppress expression of genes associated with inflammation, apoptosis, and complement, which are believed to cause ischemia/reperfusion(More)
Interpolation of field data from unstructured meshes requires the potentially expensive identification of the finite element or volume within which the interpolating point lies. A number of geometric search algorithms have been proposed to reduce this expense at the cost of setting up and storing additional search tables. Using tetrahedral finite element(More)
Numerical simulations of Doppler ultrasound (DUS) relying on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models of nonaxial flow have traditionally employed detailed (but computationally intensive) models of the DUS physics, or have sacrificed much of the physics in the interest of computational or conceptual simplicity. In this paper, we present a compromise(More)
