Tomographic PIV analysis of physiological flow conditions in a patient-specific arteriovenous fistula

The arteriovenous fistula (AVF), which is a vasculature created for end-stage renal disease patients who require haemodialysis, is susceptible to many vascular diseases. ...The current study is an investigation of the complex three-dimensional flow within a physiological AVF geometry, using tomographic particle image velocimetry... … The ViVitro Superpump (ViVitro Labs Inc., BC, Canada) was used as the flow source and a network of rigid Tygon tubing inclusive of valves, to simulate vascular resistance, and air-filled syringes, to simulate vascular compliance, connected the model to the pump …
