As engineering and medicine converge, researchers are making gains in understanding and treating causes of cardiovascular disease.
Virtual surgery could help doctors treat complex congenital heart defects.
A non-invasive computational method for determining pressure drop across an arterial blockage could help cardiologists make more-objective and accurate treatment decisions.
The long-term prognosis for babies born with single-ventricle heart defects can depend on the location of vascular connections made during corrective surgery. Shanghai Children’s Medical Center uses simulation to individualize this surgery. Researchers employ computational fluid dynamics to determine the optimal connection points based on the patient’s cardiovascular anatomy, improving surgical effectiveness and resulting in a better quality of life for these children.
A fluid structure interaction simulation is performed to capture patient-specific modeling of hypertensive hemodynamics.
Researchers at Linköping University address diagnosis and treatment planning for aortic coarctation by using ANSYS CFX computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software to simulate turbulent blood flow both before and after surgical intervention.
