Handbook of Vascular Motion

Handbook of Vascular Motion (PROSE Book Award Nominee by Elsevier) provides a comprehensive review of the strategies and methods to quantify vascular motion and deformations relevant for cardiovascular device design and mechanical durability evaluation. It also explains the current state of knowledge of vascular beds that are particularly important for the medical device industry. Finally, it explores the application of vascular motion to computational simulations, benchtop testing and fatigue analysis, as well as further implications on clinical outcomes, product development and business.

It’s exciting when a new field opens up — and that’s where we are with vascular motion. Dr. Cheng has provided a clear and highly readable overview of the medical and engineering science surrounding the motion of vessels and the consequences for treatments and technologies. As a bonus, the book is sprinkled with some intriguing hints of new things to come as clinicians, investigators, and inventors pursue this rapidly evolving area.

This first of its kind textbook deals with topics that will gain increasing importance as endovascular grafts are increasingly used to treat vascular lesions. These endografts have to dwell and function in a hostile vascular environment governed by some of the forces described in this unique text. Overcoming these forces is a key challenge for the future. This book will help meet that challenge.
