Multiblock High Order Large Eddy Simulation of Powered Fontan Hemodynamics: Towards Computational Surgery.

Abstract

Children born with only one functional ventricle must typically undergo a series of three surgeries to obtain the so-called Fontan circulation in which the blood coming from the body passively flows from the Vena Cavae (VCs) to the Pulmonary Arteries (PAs) through the Total Cavopulmonary Connection (TCPC). The circulation is inherently inefficient due to… (More)
