Abstract

In this paper a 1D model is presented for the simulation of blood flow in stenosed coronary arteries. The model was developed by implementing a special boundary counditions in a previously published arterial blood flow model. The stenosis as well as the arterioles were modelled as linear resistances. Using patient-specific parameters, blood flow can be calculated for different inlet flow rates. The model was used to simulate blood pressure waveforms of 5 patients diagnosed with coronary stenosis. Simulation results show good agreement with measurement data.
