Three-dimensional numerical simulation of blood flow in the aortic arch during cardiopulmonary bypass.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To better understand the mechanism of stroke during cardiopulmonary bypass, it is necessary to obtain information on the location of turbulence, wall pressure, and flow distribution within the aortic arch. METHODS Blood flow was numerically simulated using the finite element method in the following representative case: a curved arterial cannula… (More)
