Book Description :

In recent years, the study of computational hemodynamics within anatomically complex vascular regions has generated great interest among clinicians. The progress in computational fluid dynamics, image processing and high-performance computing haveallowed us to identify the candidate vascular regions for the appearance of cardiovascular diseases and to predict how this disease may evolve. Medicine currently uses a paradigm called diagnosis. In this thesis we attempt to introduce into medicine the predictive paradigm that has been used in engineering for many years. The objective of this thesis is therefore to develop predictive models based on diagnostic indicators for cardiovascular pathologies. We try to predict the evolution of aortic abdominal aneurysm, aortic coarctation and coronary artery disease in a personalized way for each patient. To understand how the cardiovascular pathology will evolve and when it will become a health risk, it is necessary to develop new technologies by merging medical imaging and computational science. We propose diagnostic indicators that can improve the diagnosis and predict the evolution of the disease more efficiently than the methods used until now. In particular, a new methodology for computing diagnostic indicators based on computational hemodynamics and medical imaging is proposed. We have worked with data of anonymous patients to create real predictive technology that will allow us to continue advancing in personalized medicine and generate more sustainable health systems. However, our final aim is to achieve an impact at a clinical level. Several groups have tried to create predictive models for cardiovascular pathologies, but they have not yet begun to use them in clinical practice. Our objective is to go further and obtain predictive variables to be used practically in the clinical field. It is to be hoped that in the future extremely precise databases of all of our anatomy and physiology will be available to doctors. These data can be used for predictive models to improve diagnosis or to improve therapies or personalized treatments.

Book Description :

Peter Hunter Computational physiology for the cardiovascular system is entering a new and exciting phase of clinical application. Biophysically based models of the human heart and circulation, based on patient-specific anatomy but also informed by po- lation atlases and incorporating a great deal of mechanistic understanding at the cell, tissue, and organ levels, offer the prospect of evidence-based diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The clinical value of patient-specific modeling is well illustrated in application areas where model-based interpretation of clinical images allows a more precise analysis of disease processes than can otherwise be achieved. For example, Chap. 6 in this volume, by Speelman et al. , deals with the very difficult problem of trying to predict whether and when an abdominal aortic aneurysm might burst. This requires automated segmentation of the vascular geometry from magnetic re- nance images and finite element analysis of wall stress using large deformation elasticity theory applied to the geometric model created from the segmentation. The time-varying normal and shear stress acting on the arterial wall is estimated from the arterial pressure and flow distributions. Thrombus formation is identified as a potentially important contributor to changed material properties of the arterial wall. Understanding how the wall adapts and remodels its material properties in the face of changes in both the stress loading and blood constituents associated with infl- matory processes (IL6, CRP, MMPs, etc.

Book Description :

Current diagnostic tools for assessing cardiovascular disease mostly focus on measuring a given biomarker at a specific spatial location where an abnormality is suspected. However, as a result of the dynamic and complex nature of the cardiovascular system, the analysis of isolated biomarkers is generally not sufficient to characterize the pathological mechanisms behind a disease. Model-based approaches that integrate the mechanisms through which different components interact, and present possibilities for system-level analyses, give us a better picture of a patient’s overall health status. One of the main goals of cardiovascular modelling is the development of personalized models based on clinical measurements. Recent years have seen remarkable advances in medical imaging and the use of personalized models is slowly becoming a reality. Modern imaging techniques can provide an unprecedented amount of anatomical and functional information about the heart and vessels. In this context, three-dimensional, three-directional, cine phase-contrast (PC) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), commonly referred to as 4D Flow MRI, arises as a powerful tool for creating personalized models. 4D Flow MRI enables the measurement of time-resolved velocity information with volumetric coverage. Besides providing a rich dataset within a single acquisition, the technique permits retrospective analysis of the data at any location within the acquired volume. This thesis focuses on improving subject-specific assessment of cardiovascular function through model-based analysis of 4D Flow MRI data. By using computational models, we aimed to provide mechanistic explanations of the underlying physiological processes, derive novel or improved hemodynamic markers, and estimate quantities that typically require invasive measurements. Paper I presents an evaluation of current markers of stenosis severity using advanced models to simulate flow through a stenosis. Paper II presents a framework to personalize a reduced-order, mechanistic model of the cardiovascular system using exclusively non-invasive measurements, including 4D Flow MRI data. The modelling approach can unravel a number of clinically relevant parameters from the input data, including those representing the contraction and relaxation patterns of the left ventricle, and provide estimations of the pressure-volume loop. In Paper III, this framework is applied to study cardiovascular function at rest and during stress conditions, and the capability of the model to infer load-independent measures of heart function based on the imaging data is demonstrated. Paper IV focuses on evaluating the reliability of the model parameters as a step towards translation of the model to the clinic.

Book Description :

Historically, guidelines and practices in cardiovascular surgery have been developed through trial-and-error in human and animal studies. Improvements in these practices concerning overall hemodynamics in the patient require extensive experience, often gained through large clinical trials. The development of realistic patient-specific simulation capabilities offers a safe and inexpensive sand-box for rapidly testing new surgical techniques and medical devices. Recent developments in image acquisition, anatomical modeling, and predictive hemodynamics simulations have given rise to the paradigm of virtual surgical planning for cardiovascular surgeries, building on personalized treatments found in other areas of medicine. Despite these developments, clinical translation of virtual surgical planning tools have been limited by computational cost of patient-specific simulations, intractable run-times for parametric studies, and complexity of modeling cardiovascular surgery. In this thesis, I address the last two limitations, that is, reduction of run-time for design discovery, through a simulation-based optimization framework, and expansion of the current set of cardiovascular surgical modeling tools. We select the Surrogate Management Framework (SMF) is selected as the optimization framework of choice, owing to its' flexibility, ability to handle general constraints, non-smooth convergence theory, and popularity as a black-box optimizer. To reduce the SMF run-time in a high-performance computing environment, two fully concurrent variants of the SMF are developed. The trade-off between total computational expense and time-efficiency for these variants are shown for a set of analytical functions. Substantial savings in time is also obtained on a model simulation-based optimization problem. The concurrent methods also showed more robustness to choice of initialization set. The developed concurrent SMF is then applied to a problem of clinical interest: the design of a systemic-to-pulmonary shunt for the assisted bidirectional Glenn (ABG), a recently proposed alternative for stage-1 single ventricle palliation. With the goal of maximizing pulmonary flow subject to physiological Vena Caval pressure constraint, optimal pulmonary flow-SVC pressure behavior is found to depend strongly on pulmonary vascular resistance. Pulmonary vascular resistance values in neonates, assessed from literature and from a retrospective study, show theoretical viability of optimal ABG designs, as well as raise fundamental questions on existing notions of oxygen delivery in single ventricle neonates. These questions are discussed in detail with the help of lumped parameter models. Prior efforts to model complex vascular interventions in-silico have been limited to either placement of medical devices, such as stents, or to the addition or removal of whole vessels or grafts. A new direction for extending analysis-based virtual surgery modeling is presented through the example of an end-to-end resection surgery for aortic coarctation patients. A mesh generated from an anatomical model is altered directly using computational geometric operations, instead of analytical features of the model. This allows for a more physical parametrization of the surgical method used for coarctation repair. The developed pipeline is demonstrated on an animal model of aortic coarctation. Future directions for extending computational geometric tools for analysis-driven virtual surgery are also motivated.
