Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biomedical engineering covers many disciplines: computer science, materials science, electronics, biotechnology, mechanical engineering. The combination of all these disciplines serves to support and develop medicine. This applies to the design and construction of medical equipment (e.g., imaging devices), software (diagnostic support systems, databases), mechanical devices (e.g., surgical robots), implementation of telemedicine, construction of artificial organs (e.g., joints, skin) and rehabilitation devices, and developing and implementing the production of biocompatible materials, i.e., tolerated and absorbed in the body.

Biomaterials constitute a special area of biomedical engineering. Research in this field provides opportunities for progress in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. It is the fastest growing research area both in the scientific community and in the industrial sector. Advances in our understanding of the relationships between the structures, properties, applications or functions of all classes of materials, as well as advances in our understanding the biological aspects of interactions, determine the possibilities of using biomaterials.

This Special Issue will include modern applications of biomedical engineering in a wide range of medical specialties. Hence, the proposed topics include but are not limited to the following issues:

  • Processing and analysis of biomedical signals and images;
  • Design and implementation of electronic medical devices and systems;
  • Applications of biomaterials, including implants, in medicine and pharmacology;
  • Simulation and modelling of organs, tissues and biological systems;
  • Development of deep learning architectures in the analysis of biomedical data.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Abstract
The objective of this study is to assess the ability of an Artificial Circulatory Phantom (ACP) to verify its accuracy in simulating the movement of artificial vessels vs. real vessels under changing cardiovascular parameters such as heartbeat, ejection fraction, and total peripheral resistance.

The objective of this study is to assess the ability of an Artificial Circulatory Phantom (ACP) to verify its accuracy in simulating the movement of artificial vessels vs. real vessels under changing cardiovascular parameters such as heartbeat, ejection fraction, and total peripheral resistance. The experiments were conducted with blood-like fluid that flows through two types of vessels: iliac arteries and different types of ePTFE vascular prostheses. Parameters such as diameter and tortuosity were measured and analyzed. The flow characteristics included a pulsating pattern with a frequency of 60–120 min−1 and ejection volumes ranging from 70 to 115 mL. The results showed a predominantly positive correlation between wall displacement (Wd) and tortuosity index (Ti) for the iliac artery (R2 = 0.981), as well as between Wd and mean tortuosity index (MTi) (R2 = 0.994). Similarly, positive correlations between Wd and Ti (R2 = 0.942) and Wd and MTi (R2 = 0.922) were computed for the ePTFE vascular prosthesis. The ACP introduced in this study is a valuable tool for evaluating various vessel types and the spatial configurations of vascular prostheses under diverse hemodynamic conditions. These findings are promising for the advancement of novel approaches to the testing and design of vascular grafts, ultimately enhancing their patency rates in future applications. Full article
