This is the first comprehensive book to discuss the application of fluid mechanical analysis to human circulation. Reviews the fluid and solid mechanics pertinent to the application of fluid mechanical analysis in the arterial system. Deals with fluid mechanics of implants and measurement techniques. Reviews the salient concepts of cardiovascular physiology. Covers the rheology of blood and blood vessel mechanics. Discusses steady and unsteady flow analysis in human circulation and in flow across the native heart valves. Covers implants, such as artificial heart valves; vascular grafts; and stents. Covers the measurement techniques employed in vivo and in vitro for diagnostics and for understanding the relationship between fluid mechanics and vascular diseases. An appropriate reference for medical professionals who want to learn more about human circulation.show more
