    In vivo based biomechanics of right and left coronary arteries

    A realistic/comprehensive biomechanical model of right/left coronary arteries is developed using the in vivo geometric and haemodynamic properties obtained from optical coherence tomography (OCT), angiography, and electrocardiography (ECG). The developed biomechanical model is constructed with the help of an image processing technique and simulated via the finite element method (FEM) for determination of regions with highest shear/von Mises stresses (which determine the potential areas for plaque rupture and initiation of myocardial infarction). A set of simulation results is compared to clinically obtained data to assess the validity of modelling/simulations. The model comprehensively incorporates information relating to ...
