Abstract: Flow structures in models of the distal end-to-side anastomosis were visualised under steady and pulsatile flow conditions using planar illumination of suspended tracer particles. The effects of anastomosis geometry and flow in the proximal artery were investigated in models with anastomosis angles of 15, 30 or 45 degrees. The flow patterns in steady flow were highly three-dimensional and comprised two helical vortices in the distal artery, a recirculation vortex in the occluded proximal arterial segment and a…
