NUMERICAL MODELING OF VENA CAVA FILTER PLACEMENT AND ITS EFFECT ON HAEMODYNAMICS

Modeling of blood vascular system is a wide field for scientific efforts and includes a large number of aspects. In
this regard it is reasonable to investigate separately the vascular wall structure and its response to deformation.
We implement the fiber model based on biological features of vascular wall structure, suggested by Charles
Peskin . We consider the model calibration issue with special input data - equations of vessel state. The main
part of the work we devote to interaction of elastic fiber model and global blood circulation model. Models
interaction makes it possible to research an effect of vena cava filter placement on haemodynamics.
