CFD Challenge: Predicting Patient-Specific Hemodynamics at Rest and Stress through an Aortic Coarctation

Abstract

Background Coarctation of the aorta (CoA), a narrowing of the aorta, accounts for approximately 10% of congenital heart defects in the western world. Due to the reduction in diameter, high pressure gradients can appear across the aortic coarctation, resulting in an increased cardiac workload. Current therapies, either surgical or minimally-invasive, aim to… (More)
