Numerical modeling of compensation mechanisms for peripheral arterial stenoses


The goal of this paper is to develop a numerical model for physiological mechanisms that help to compensate reduced blood flow caused by a peripheral arterial stenosis. Thereby we restrict ourselves to the following compensation mechanisms: Metabolic regulation and arteriogenesis, i.e., growth of pre-existing collateral arteries. Our model is based on… (More)
