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

abstract
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.
