Recent work has illuminated differences in carotid artery blood flow rate dynamics of older versus young adults. To what degree flow waveform shape, and indeed the use of measured versus assumed flow rates, affects the simulated hemodynamics of older adult carotid bifurcations has not been elucidated. Image-based computational fluid dynamics models of N=9 normal, older adult carotid bifurcations were reconstructed from magnetic resonance angiography. Subject-specific hemodynamics were computed… CONTINUE READING
