Use of Computational Fluid Dynamics to Estimate Hemodynamic Effects of Respiration on Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome Surgery: Total Cavopulmonary Connection Treatments

Figure 6

Four selected time steps for hemodynamic comparison ( , , , and ). (a) Inlet velocity conditions taking respiration into account. (b) Inlet velocity conditions only including cardiac pulsatility (IVC: inferior vena cava; LIV: left innominate vein; RIV: right innominate vein; LPA: left pulmonary artery; RPA: right pulmonary artery; ECG: electrocardiogram).
