BME 730 Vascular Mechanics and Pathology

Credits: (3-0) 3

The course focuses on the artery and arterial diseases, including the genesis of heart disease. Since the artery serves as both conduit of blood flow and container of blood pressure, the course covers both the general principles and the occurrence of stress concentration in the pressure vessel. The topics included are atherosclerosis, structure and mechanics of the artery, pressure vessel principles, stress concentration in the artery, endothelial cells and low density lipoproteins, smooth muscle cells and stretch, stress reduction and atherosclerosis reduction, vein graft, intracranial aneurysms, and aortic aneurysms.
