FLOWLab is excited to announce that we have released a new preprint reporting a quantitative hemodynamic analysis for flow in the aorta of heart failure patients on mechanical circulatory support. This preprint is titled "Quantitative Assessment of Aortic Hemodynamics for Varying Left Ventricular Assist Device Outflow Graft Angles and Flow Pulsation" and is available on medRxiv at the following link: https://doi.org/10.1101/2022.06.17.22276555. This is the first in a series of forthcoming studies we have recently completed on hemodynamics in patients on LVAD support, and their interrelationship with stroke and cerebrovascular accident risks. The series of studies was led by Akshita Sahni, in collaboration with Dr. Jay D. Pal and Dr. Erin E. McIntyre. The study was supported by a University of Colorado Anschutz-Boulder Nexus Research Collaboration Grant. We look forward to comments, questions, and feedback from the broader scientific community.
