Project: Evaluation of left ventricular function using fluido dynamical simulation.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-95 – 31-DEC-99
- Left ventricular function and diastolic filling can be evaluated by echo Doppler technique in several cardiovascular disorders where these functions are impaired. Numerical analysis allows development of new mathematical models of blood flow mechanics in the left ventricle and the large arteries. These models will be fitted and tested by comparison of data obtained from the clinic. Patients with hypertension, valvular disease, heart failure and infarction will be recruited.
