Numerical Study on Blood Flow Modelling in Arteries

In order to prevent, diagnose and treat vascular disease, detailed knowledge of blood blow and the response of blood vessels is essential. The use of computer simulations can provide researchers extremely useful tool of the interpretation and analysis of the circulatory sysytem in both physiological and pathological situations. In this work, we present a 2D mathematical model to forecast for some cardivascular diseases such as stenosis and aneurysms geometry. We consider a blood flow based on Stokes and Navier Stokes equations (NSE). The finite element numerical solutions are obtained based on grad div stabilization. Numerical experiments will be presented in different geometries to verify almost all common practical knowledge.

Investigation of fluid structure interaction in cardiovascular system from diagnostic and pathological perspective
Salman, Hüseyin Enes; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Atherosclerosis is a disease of the cardiovascular system where a stenosis may develop in an artery which is an abnormal narrowing in the blood vessel that adversely affects the blood flow. Due to the constriction of the blood vessel, the flow is disturbed, forming a jet and recirculation downstream of the stenosis. Dynamic pressure fluctuations on the inner wall of the blood vessel leads to the vibration of the vessel structure and acoustic energy is propagated through the surrounding tissue that can be de...
Examination of the dielectrophoretic spectra of MCF7 breast cancer cells and leukocytes
Çağlayan, Zeynep; Demircan Yalçın, Yağmur; Külah, Haluk (Wiley, 2020-03-01)
The detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in blood is crucial to assess metastatic progression and to guide therapy. Dielectrophoresis (DEP) is a powerful cell surface marker-free method that allows intrinsic dielectric properties of suspended cells to be exploited for CTC enrichment/isolation from blood. Design of a successful DEP-based CTC enrichment/isolation system requires that the DEP response of the targeted particles should accurately be known. This paper presents a DEP spectrum method to inve...
Model-based evaluation of the control strategies of a hand rehabilitation robot based on motor learning principles

Stroke is an important health problem that occurs after blockage or bleeding in the vessels feeding the brain. It is one of the leading causes of death in the world. Patients with surviving hemiplegia often have a loss or decrease in voluntary movement of the right or left side of the body. The disease reduces the quality of life of patients with its spasticity and limits their independence; This situation poses an important problem for patients, their relatives, and the whole society. This thesis aims to d...
Synthesis and surface modification studies of biomedical polyurethanes to improve long term biocompatibility
Aksoy, Eda Ayşe; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2008)
Thrombus formation and blood coagulation is a major problem associated with blood contacting products such as catheters, vascular grafts and artificial hearts. An intense research is being conducted towards the synthesis of new hemocompatible materials and mdifications of surfaces with biological molecules. In this study, polyurethane (PU) films were synthesized in medical purity from diisocyanate and polyol without using any other ingredients and the chemical, thermal and mechanical properties were charact...
EGF containing gelatin-based wound dressings
Ulubayram, K; Cakar, AN; Korkusuz, P; Ertan, C; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2001-06-01)
In case of bulk loss of tissue or non-healing wounds such as burns, trauma, diabetic, decubitus and venous stasis ulcers, a proper wound dressing is needed to cover the wound area, protect the damaged tissue, and if possible to activate the cell proliferation and stimulate the healing process. In this study, synthesis of a novel polymeric bilayer wound dressing containing epidermal growth-factor (EGF)-loaded microspheres was aimed. For this purpose, a natural, nontoxic and biocompatible material, gelatin, w...
