Many clinical studies suggest that local blood flow patterns are involved in the location and development of atherosclerosis. In coronary diseases, this assumption should be corroborated by quantitative information on local hemodynamic parameters such as pressure, velocity or wall shear stress. Nowadays, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) algorithms coupled(More)
Our knowledge of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) hydrodynamics has been considerably improved with the recent introduction of phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (phase-contrast MRI), which can provide CSF and blood flow measurements throughout the cardiac cycle. Key temporal and amplitude parameters can be calculated at different sites to elucidate the(More)
We have investigated the recovery of exopolysaccharides produced by Sinorhizobium meliloti M5N1 CS bacteria from fermentation broths using different membrane filtration processes: cross-flow filtration with a 7 mm i.d. tubular ceramic membrane of 0.5-microm pores under fixed transmembrane pressure or fixed permeate flux and dynamic filtration with a 0.2(More)
INTRODUCTION Inside the craniospinal system, blood, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) interactions occurring through volume exchanges are still not well understood. We built a physical model of this global hydrodynamic system. The main objective was to study, in controlled conditions, CSF-blood interactions to better understand the phenomenon underlying(More)
As brain ventricles lose their ability to regulate the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure, serious brain conditions collectively named hydrocephalus can appear. By modelling ventricular dynamics with the laws of physics, dynamical instabilities are evidenced, caused by either CSF transport dysregulations or abnormal properties of the elasticity of the(More)
