Semi-Automatic Planning and Three-Dimensional Electrospinning of Patient-Specific Grafts for Fontan Surgeryhttps://www.embs.org/tbme/wp-content/uploads/sites/19/2021/12/TBME-00517-2021-Highlight-Image.gif170177IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)//www.embs.org/tbme/wp-content/uploads/sites/19/2022/06/ieee-tbme-logo2x.png
This work aims to develop a semi-automatic tissue engineered vascular graft (TEVG) planning method for designing and 3D-printing hemodynamically optimized Fontan TEVGs. We present a computation framework by parameterizing Fontan grafts to explore patient-specific vascular graft design space and search for optimal designs. We employed nonlinear constrained optimization technique to minimize indexed power loss of Fontan grafts while keeping hepatic flow distribution (HFD) and percentage of abnormal wall shear stress (%WSS) within clinically acceptable thresholds. Our work significantly reduces the collaborative effort and turnaround time between clinicians and engineering teams for designing patient-specific hemodynamically optimized TEVGs.
