Introduction.- Anatomy of the Cardiovascular System.- Cardiovascular Physiology.- Images, Signals and Movements.- Rheology.- Hemodynamics.- Numerical Simulations.- Cardiovascular Diseases.- Treatments of Cardiovascular Diseases.- Conclusion. A) Anatomical, Biological, Medical Glossaries. B) Adipocyte. C) Basic Aspects in Mechanics. D) Numerical Simulations.
This authoritative book presents the basic knowledge and state-of-the-art techniques necessary to carry out investigations of the cardiovascular system using modeling and simulation. This volume contains chapters on anatomy, physiology, continuum mechanics, as well as pathological changes in the vasculature walls including the heart and their treatments. Methods of numerical simulations are given and illustrated in particular by application to wall diseases.
Multidisciplinary approach starting from the description of accumulated knowledge on the biology of the cardiovascular system to the numerical simulation of flows in the vasculature, incorporating rheology and mechanical data
Applications of modeling and simulations on health problems as well as therapeutic strategies
State of the art in applied mathematics to physiological flows
Biological and mechanical glossaries for easy reading
