The coronary arteries undergo large dynamic variations during each cardiac cycle due to their position on the beating heart. The local artery curvature varies significantly. In this study the influence of dynamic curvature on coronary artery hemodynamics is analyzed numerically. A realistic model of the bifurcation of the left anterior descending coronary artery and its first diagonal branch is curved by attaching it to the surface of a sphere with time-varying radius based on experimental… CONTINUE READING
