    Optical coherence tomography-based patient-specific coronary artery reconstruction and fluid–structure interaction simulation

    Plaque rupture is related to the mechanical stress it suffered. The value and distribution of the mechanical stress in plaque could help on assessing plaque vulnerability. To look into the stress conditions in the coronary artery, a patient-specific coronary model was created by using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and angiography imaging data. The reconstructed coronary model consisted of the structure of the lumen, the arterial wall and plaque components. Benefited by the high resolution of OCT, detailed structures such as the thin fibrous cap could be observed and built into the geometry. On this reconstructed coronary model, a fully coupled ...
