  • Introduction

    Numerical and experimental methods are used to understand and predict the physiological mechanisms, effects of the treatment techniques and develop new devices and methods for treating the patients.

    These methods provide valuable information about the investigated mechanism because they are repeatable, simpler and it is possible test different scenarios by modifying the system slightly. Most importantly these systems can be used safely to assess the new treatment techniques and test the artificial organs and support systems before the clinical applications.

    The aim of this special issue titled “Numerical and Experimental Methods in Cardiovascular Sciences” is publishing applications of the numerical and experimental methods which are used in the Cardiovascular Sciences before the clinical trials.

    The submitted studies may include studies on the following topics that are specific but are not limited to:

    1. Cardiovascular biomechanics
    2. Physiological measurements in cardiovascular system
    3. Implants and artifical organs used in cardiovascular systems
    4. Heart valve dynamics
    5. Developing in-silico tools for cardiovascular system
    6. Developing in-vitro tools for cardiovascular system
    7. Developing ex-vivo tools for cardiovascular system
    8. Electrophysiology of the heart
    9. Vessel mechanics
    10. Mechanical circulatory systems
    11. Imaging in cardiovascular system
    12. Patho-physiology of the cardiovascular system
