Introduction of Research
Outline of Heart Simulator 6/6

Myocardium must supply oxygen and energy to itself for the work of heart to send the blood off, and their transportation is realized by coronary circulation. The coronary arteries which left a basal part of the aorta bifurcate repeatedly to become capillaries of around 1µm diameter finally, where materials are exchanged between blood and each cell through membrane. Then, as coronary veins, they merge repeatedly to pour the blood into the right atrium at last. Because the hemodynamics is influenced greatly by the contraction of the myocardium, its spatiotemporal distribution is so complicated. The coronary circulatory system is modelled precisely in this simulator, and the application to ischemic cardiac diseases is expected. [Visualization: Fujitsu Ltd.]
