An in vitro test bench reproducing coronary blood flow signals

Abstract

BACKGROUND It is a known fact that blood flow pattern and more specifically the pulsatile time variation of shear stress on the vascular wall play a key role in atherogenesis. The paper presents the conception, the building and the control of a new in vitro test bench that mimics the pulsatile flows behavior based on in vivo measurements. METHODS An in… (More)
