Temporal variations of the coronary arteries during a cardiac cycle are defined as the superposition of the changes in the position, curvature, and torsion of the coronary artery axis markers and the variations in the lumen cross-sectional shape due to the distensible wall motion induced by the pulse pressure and contraction of the myocardium in a cardiac cycle. This review discusses whether modeling of the temporal variations of the coronary arteries is needed for the investigation of hemodynamics specifically in time-critical applications such as a clinical environment. The numerical modelings in the literature that model or disregard the temporal variations of the coronary arteries on the..View full abstract
