Relationship between wall shear stress and right ventricle dysplasia Relationship between wall shear stress and right ventricle dysplasia

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy is a genetic disease that affects the extracellular structure of the right ventricle. Many of the patients stay undiagnosed since they are asymptomatic at the early stages and unfortunately, a not insignificant part of them due to cardiac arrest. The aim of this project is to perform computational fluid simulations with wall motion to correlate possible high wall stress areas with fat generation on ventricular dysplasia patients. This relationship is key to understand the bad contraction of those patients and understand better the physiology of this genetic disease. It will be part of a national project in collaboration with Hospital Sant Pau.
