Abstract: In order to analyse the wall mechanics and the flow dynamics in compliant vascular distal end-to-side anastomoses, computer simulation has been performed. In a model study the effect of compliance mismatch on the wall displacements and on the intramural stresses as well as the influence of wall distensibility on the flow patterns are demonstrated applying two distensible models with different graft elasticity. In addition, the flow in a rigid model simulating a vein graft without adaption of the venous lumen h…
