Computational Simulation of Blood Flow in Normal and Diseased Artery: A Review


Background: Recent developments in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) could help in the study of hemodynamics in the cardiovascular system that provides insight of variation of flow patterns with respect to changes in geometries. This paper focuses on the review of state of the art in the applications of computational fluid dynamics in the coronary artery. Methods: This article would give an overview about the computational fluid dynamics simulation of the blood flow in normal coronary artery, stenosed coronary artery, Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) and coronary stent. Conclusion/ Application: The computational fluid dynamics study would help the surgeon to get an idea about the severity of stenosed coronary artery, appropriate geometry and location of coronary artery bypass graft and coronary stent.

Keywords: Blood Flow, Computational Simulation, Coronary Stent, Diseased Artery, Hemodynamics, Normal Artery
