Mathematical modelling of oxygen transport in skeletal and cardiac muscles

Abstract:

Understanding and characterising the diffusive transport of capillary oxygen and nutrients in striated muscles is key to assessing angiogenesis and investigating the efficacy of experimental and therapeutic interventions for numerous pathological conditions, such as chronic ischaemia. In articular, the influence of both muscle tissue and microvascular heterogeneities on capillary oxygen supply is poorly understood. The objective of this thesis is to develop mathematical and computational m...
