Analysis of blood flow in an out-of-plane CABG model.

Abstract

Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) is a routine surgical treatment for ischemic and infarcted myocardium. A large number of CABG fail postoperatively because of intimal hyperplasia within months or years. The cause of this failure is thought to be partly related to the flow patterns and shear stresses acting on the endothelial cells. An accurate… (More)
