The present study reports on computational fluid dynamics in the case of severe renal artery stenosis (RAS). An anatomically realistic model of a renal artery was reconstructed from CT scans, and used to conduct CFD simulations of blood flow across RAS. The recently developed shear stress transport (SST) turbulence model was pivotally applied in the simulation of blood flow in the region of interest. Blood flow was studied in vivo under the presence of RAS and subsequently in simulated cases… CONTINUE READING
