Synopsis:

The course introduces into a description of the human blood circulation and advanced methods are sued to explain biomechanical parameters known for healthy individual. The most frequent pathologies and their therapeutic techniques are also explained.

Anatomy of the circulatory system

Physiological principles of the circulation

Mechanics of the heart

Arterial mechanics

Mechanics of veins

Hemodynamics

Propagation of pressure pulse wave

Diseases in cardiovascular system I (atherosclerosis, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, ischemia)

Diseases in cardiovascular system II (valvular diseases, cardiomyopathy, infarction, aneurysm, dissection)

Constitutive modeling of the heart and blood vessels I

Constitutive modeling of the heart and blood vessels II

Mechanical engineering contribution to cardiovascular therapy I (stent, stent-graft, arterial prostheses)

Mechanical engineering contribution to cardiovascular therapy II (valvular prostheses, heart substitutes)
