Flow Mechanotransduction Response in Endothelial Cell Monolayers and Platelets
Blood flow through the cardiovascular system forms many spatiotemporally dynamic flow fields. This is due to the naturally pulsatile motion of the cardiac cycle, the inherent elastic behavior of arteries and the collapsibility of veins, and changes in activity levels throughout the day leading to changes in flow rate. Shear ...
Cadaveric Simulation of Flatfoot and Surgical Corrective Techniques: The Evans versus the Z-osteotomy
The main clinical purpose of this study is to compare two different surgical procedures, the Evans calcaneal osteotomy and the Z-osteotomy, both of which are used to correct Stage II (flexible) cases of flatfoot deformity. This work is a follow-up to a pilot study completed previously by the VA Center of Excellence for Limb ...
