Modelling oxygen transport and tissue damage in the human brain

Abstract:

Healthy brain function depends on continuous blood flow carrying oxygen and metabolites. Ischaemic stroke, caused by an occlusion in the cerebral artery that disrupts blood and oxygen supply and leads to irreversible tissue damage, is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the world.

To complement clinical trials to improve the functional outcomes of stroke patients, computational models have been developed to build a virtual platform (i.e. an in silico trial) to test...
