Simulation of lung function evolution after heart-lung transplantation using a numerical model

Abstract

A morphometry-based computational model for expiratory flow in humans was used to study the unusual configuration of the maximum expiratory flow-volume (MEFV) curve associated with alterations in lung function after heart-lung transplantation (HLT). The postoperative MEFV curve showed a peak, followed by a gently sloping plateau over the midvolume range… (More)
