About this book

Computational Cardiovascular Mechanics promotes the application of patient-specific cardiovascular mechanics models to clinical medicine, which aid medical diagnosis and enhance treatment for cardiovascular disease.

Organized in a two-part structure, this volume presents a comprehensive overview of computational modeling from both solid mechanics and fluid dynamics perspectives. Part I offers chapters devoted to various techniques involving finite element modeling of ventricular mechanics and computational fluid dynamics, with a focus in cardiovascular mechanics. Part II covers heart failure applications which utilize techniques in solid mechanics and fluid dynamics. In the former, both diagnostic (i.e., global and regional indices of myocardial contractility) as well as therapeutic approaches (surgical ventricular remodeling procedures, passive ventricular constraint devices, ventricular implantation of biomaterials and cardiac resynchronization therapy) are discussed. In the latter, the fluid mechanics of heart valves is simulated, as are surgical procedures and heart failure-related devices in the form of coronary artery bypass grafting and ventricular assist devices.

Computational Cardiovascular Mechanics is a vital resource for cardiovascular disease researchers who want to learn how to apply computational fluid and/or solid mechanics to the diagnosis and treatment of heart failure.
