Flow Modeling based on 3D OCT reconstructions

European Bifurcation Club 2014 - EBC 2014 - Bordeaux, France Bifurcation stenting: learning from bench and simulation Flow Modeling based on 3d oct reconstructions Author: Gabriele Dubini, MD, Politecnico di Milano, Italy AIM Development of an automated reconstruction method of a stented coronary bifurcation model starting from OCT images Construction of a 3D model of the bifurcation to perform a Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulation and calculate hemodynamic quantities related to restenosis CONCLUSION An automated reconstruction method of an in-vitro stented coronary bifurcation model starting from OCT images was developed The 3D geometry obtained from this reconstruction method can be used to perform CFD simulations to quantify hemodynamic variables related to restenosis on the basis of OCT exams, to predict the regions with the highest risk of restenosis
