Simulation platforms are increasingly becoming complementary tools for cutting-edge cardiovascular research. The interplay among structural properties of the arterial wall, morphometry, anatomy, wave propagation phenomena, and ultimately, cardiovascular diseases continues to be poorly understood. Accurate models are powerful tools to shed light on these open problems. We developed an anatomically detailed computational model of the arterial vasculature to conduct 1-D blood flow simulations to… CONTINUE READING
