New paper out on pediatric cardiology studies

March 8, 2024 | Our latest HLHS research published in CVET

Personalized flow simulations and pediatric digital twins can assess the impacts of different treatment options before the doctor enters the operating room.

In our latest work, we present 3D CFD models to study the Norwood procedure for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). The models are built using standard angiography and echocardiogram data to evaluate the impact of shunt characteristics on pulmonary hemodynamics (metrics known to be associated with downstream adverse events). We assess the effects of different shunt types, diameters, and configurations through virtual surgery. We show strong agreement between the digital twin and clinically measured data, and the virtual surgeries provide insight into how treatment decisions can influence blood flow.

I am excited to share the paper that came out today in  Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology. Read it here:
