Hemodynamic Modeling of AAAs

Overview

The flow of blood through large arteries (i.e. the Aorta) results in complex flow and pressure changes.  These flow characteristics are quite abnormal in patients with Aneurysms. Robert Peattie, PhD (Engineer) leads our program aimed at better understanding these complex engineering principles in human arteries. We seek to develop mathematical and physical models that will subsequently provide insight into the behavior of aneurysms in our patients.
