In order to understand the possible role that hemodynamic factors may play in the pathogenesis of distal anastomotic intimal hyperplasia, we carried out numerical simulations of the flow field within a two-dimensional 45 degree rigid-walled end-to-side model anastomosis. The numerical code was tested and compared with experimental (photochromic dye tracer) studies using steady and near-sinusoidal waveforms, and agreement was generally very good. Using a normal human superficial femoral artery… CONTINUE READING
