    Pulse wave propagation in a model human arterial network: Assessment of 1-D numerical simulations against in vitro measurements

    , J. Biomech., Vol: 40, Pages: 3476-3486

    A numerical model based on the nonlinear, one-dimensional (1-D) equations of pressure and flow wave propagation in conduit arteries is tested against a well-defined experimental 1:1 replica of the human arterial tree. The tree consists of 37 silicone branches representing the largest central systemic arteries in the human, including the aorta, carotid arteries and arteries that perfuse the upper and lower limbs and the main abdominal organs. The set-up is mounted horizontally and connected to a pulsatile pump delivering a periodic output similar to the aortic flow. Terminal branches end in simple resistance models, consisting of stiff capillary tubes leading to an overflow reservoir that reflects a constant venous pressure. The parameters required by the numerical algorithm are directly measured in the \emph{in-vitro} set-up and no data fitting is involved. Comparison of experimental and numerical pressure and flow waveforms shows the ability of the 1-D time-domain formulation to capture the main features of pulse wave propagation measured throughout the system test. As a consequence of the simple resistive boundary conditions used to reduce the uncertainty of the parameters involved in the simulation, the experimental set-up generates waveforms at terminal branches with additional non-physiological oscillations. The frequencies of these oscillations are well captured by the 1-D model, even though amplitudes are overestimated. Adding energy losses in bifurcations and including fluid inertia and compliance to the purely resistive terminal models does not reduce the underdamped effect, suggesting that wall visco-elasticity might play an important role in the experimental results. Nevertheless, average relative root-mean-square errors between simulations and experimental waveforms are smaller than 4% for pressure and 19% for the flow at all 70 locations studied.

    Can the modified Allen's test always detect sufficient collateral flow in the hand? A computational study.

    , Comput Methods Biomech Biomed Engin, Vol: 9, Pages: 353-361, ISSN: 1025-5842

    Blood flow in the largest arteries of the arm up to the digital arteries is numerically modelled using the one-dimensional equations of pressure and flow wave propagation in compliant vessels. The model can be applied to different anatomies of arterial networks and can simulate compression of arteries, these allowing us to simulate the modified Allen's test (MAT) and to assess its suitability for the detection of sufficient collateral flow in the hand if radial blood supply is interrupted. The test measures blood flow in the superficial palmar arch before and during compression of the radial artery. The absence of reversal flow in the palmar arch with the compression indicates insufficient collateral flow and is referred to as a positive MAT. This study shows that small calibres of the superficial palmar arch and insufficient compression of the radial artery can lead to false-positive results. Measurement of the drop in digital systolic pressures with compression of the radial artery has proved to be a more sensitive test to predict the presence of sufficient ulnar collateral flow in networks with small calibres of the superficial palmar arch. However, this study also shows that digital pressure measurements can fail in detecting enough collateral flow if the radial artery is insufficiently compressed.

    Measuring and modelling the interaction between the arterial wall and blood flow transport

    , Internal Medicine Clinical and Laboratory, Vol: 11, Pages: 3-13, ISSN: 1590-9271

    This work describes computer simulation and experimental techniques applied in combination to investigate the geometry and haemodynamics of arteries, with particular reference to arterial graft design. The geometry of grafts is determined from in-vivo measurements and from resin casts by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are used to investigate the relation between arterial geometry, wall shear stress and particle transport. The use of stereo-lithographic (STL) techniques to supplement conventional MRI in-vivo, and to help to bridge the gap with computational modelling by providing realistic models for experimental investigations is reviewed. Methods to investigate the integrated fluid shear loading of particles, the transport of vasoactive species such as ADP, the residence time and the role of geometry in flow mixing are described. Finally the combined application of CFD, MRI and STL to study the flow in grafts and the effects of disease progression is discussed.
