Computational haemodynamic analysis of left pulmonary artery angulation effects on pulmonary blood flow.

OBJECTIVES To study the effect of the angulation between the left pulmonary artery (LPA) and the main pulmonary artery on pulmonary haemodynamics. METHODS A 3D model of patient-specific pulmonary artery (PA) was reconstructed as an original model. Four models with descendent LPA angulation equalled to 120°, 110°, 100° and 90°, were reconstructed by… CONTINUE READING
