Atherosclerosis or arteriosclerotic vascular disease (ASVD), in which plaque builds up inside
arteries,the most common cause for mortality in the developed world.Endovascular procedures like
angioplasty for atherosclerosis treatment provide an alternative to open-surgery and require
minimal invasion into the human body
Angioplasty is used extensively for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease to restore
correct blood flow and for the treatment of coronary heart disease and involves stent
insertion.However, in-stent restenosis, a repeated narrowing of artery post stent implantation,
limits the clinical success of angioplasty, which is caused by mechanical factors, such as wall
strain distribution and blood flow induced wall shear stress and local arterial wall stress.
Considering the huge expense for the experimental evaluation of stent deployment, we used an
alternative route of computational numerical methods to understand the mechanical behavior of
According to a recent survey conducted
among 400 adult volunteers
underwent clinical and radiological evaluations, Dr.Nakagawa reported the incidence of
un-ruptured Intracranial Aneurysms (IA’s) to be as high as 7%.
Brain aneurysms are often discovered when they rupture, causing bleeding into the brain or the
space closely surrounding the brain called the subarachnoid space causing a Subarachnoid
SAH can lead to hemorrhagic stroke, brain damage and death. Hence, it is required to determine
whether the particular aneurysm has a high risk of rupture so that it can be treated before
bleeding occurs. There are certain cases where neurosurgeons fail to judge the risk of rupture
even with their profound experience and decide not to meddle with it. Such was a problem that
was shared with us by a group of doctors wherein we are supposed to predict the rupture status
In the current fast growing busy life,
dental ailments have become
a certainty in every common man’s life.
Almost 5 out of 10 people have dental issues and end up in dental implants in some or the other
stage of their life.
The most undesirable part of this is the trauma and swelling suffered by the patients post
dental implantation. Repetitive treatments on such affected areas are never welcoming by
patients. Even expert dentists may not succeed in providing happy smiles even after proper
fixation of such artificial tooth. We took up this challenge and initiated an effort in this
regard to evaluate dental implant designs for efficient and pain-free fixation.
