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. ( 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:
