Seminars

Combining in vitro and in silico approaches towards patient-specific cardiovascular investigations

Speaker: Gabriele Dubini
Affiliation: Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering G. Natta, Politecnico di Milano
When: Thursday 18th January 2018
Time: 14:00:00
Abstract: This seminar will outline the workflow developed at the Laboratory of Biological Structure Mechanics – LaBS, Politecnico di Milano. (www.labsmech.polimi.it) for the investigation of cardiovascular devices. The combined in vitro and in silico approach will be applied to the study of stenting procedures of peripheral arteries in idealized and patient-specific models as well as to the study of percutaneous aortic valves, where fluid-structure interaction simulations are required. Such examples will demonstrate the extent to which performances of minimally-invasive devices are related to their design, the materials and the applied loads. contact: christian.vergara@polimi.it
