Project: In numero and physical modelling of postoperative aortic coarctation. The flow characteristics in the aorta with and without narrowing of the isthmus.

project duration
01-JAN-97 – 31-DEC-99
The purpose is to study the haemodynamic changes in the aortic arch after coarctectomy and the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms (ventouri effect, pulse wave propagation, intrensic walle properties). In vivo measurements/anthropometric echodoppler and MRI-data will be used to build a mathematical model, that will be validated in a physical model of the circulation.
