Research Topics

  • Medical Image Analysis. Patient-specific vascular models are created form medical image analysis. In particular given the CT scan of the leg in straight and bent position it is possible to reconstruct the arterial kinematics of the femoro-popliteal artery due to the knee bending. Read more
  • Stenting biomechanics. Computer  simulations based on numerical techniques such finite element analysis are able provide useful information about the mechanical response of the implanted stent, even under stress induced by knee bending. Read more
  • Intra-stent hemodynamics. Computational fluid dynamics can support the understanding of the onset and progression of intra-stent thrombosis, elucidating the role of leg bending on the SFA hemodynamics after the endovascular treatment of popliteal aneurysms or obstructive disease.
