3D pulsatile flow in a curved tube with coexisting model of aortic stenosis and coarctation of the aorta.

Abstract

Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital heart disease defined as an obstruction of the aorta distal to the left subclavian artery (between the aortic arch and descending aorta). It is usually associated with other diseases such as bicuspid and tricuspid aortic stenosis. If the coarctation remains uncorrected it can lead to hypertension, left ventricular… (More)
