Usage of Cardiac Simulation Results in Source Localization of Focal Epicardial Arrhythmias using Statistical Estimation
Cunedioglu, Ugur; Baysoy, Engin; Yilmaz, Bulent (2008-08-24)
Mapping of the epicardium is possible with the usage of multielectrode venous catheters; however, most of epicardial surface Is still inaccessible. To overcome this problem a method called statistical estimation was proposed, in which the relationship between catheter measurements and the remaining sites are created from previously obtained high resolution maps, called the training set. Thus, there is a need for the acquisition of high resolution epicardial maps from patients during open-chest procedures. I...
Computational modeling of cardiac dysfunctions
Berberoğlu Yılmaz, Ezgi; Göktepe, Serdar; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Computational modeling of the cardiovascular system has improved remarkably with the advances in the computer technology and mathematical modeling. The cardiac models can play a crucial role in understanding the major electromechanical, biophysical, and biochemical processes for the both healthy and pathological cases. The capability of heart models to capture the real physiological behavior depends on physiologically sound constitutive models accounting for the intrinsically non-linear, electromechanically...
A cellular automaton based electromechanical model of the heart
Bora, Ceren; Serinağaoğlu Doğrusöz, Yeşim; Tönük, Ergin; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2010)
The heart is a muscular organ which acts as a biomechanical pump. Electrical impulses are generated in specialized cells and flow through the heart myocardium by the ion changes on the cell membrane which is the beginning of both the electrical and the mechanical activity. Both the electrical and the mechanical states of the organ will directly affect the pumping activity. The main motivation of this thesis is to better understand physiological and pathological properties of the heart muscle via studying th...

Virtual Heart Models: Multi-Physics Approaches to Computational Cardiology (VHEART)
Göktepe, Serdar(2015-8-31)
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in industrialized nations. Despite the broad class of treatment techniques such as medication, surgery and tissue-engineered therapies, heart disease remains to be one of the most frequent, disabling, and life-threatening diseases. In Europe it accounts for almost half of overall annual mortality rate. In the European Union (EU) alone, cardiovascular disease causes over 2 million deaths per year. The cost of cardiovascular disease to the EU economy is €192 bill...
