Microvascular Buckling Due to Tissue Growth, James Maclaurin, Oxford University

Blood vessel abnormalities can impair blood flow into tumours, which decrease the effectiveness of chemotherapeutic treatments aimed at killing them. Tumour blood vessels can have many types of abnormality, including chaotic direction and entanglement, a high level of branching, overly porous capillary walls and chaotic blood flow. One particular type of abnormality is vascular buckling and collapse. The aim of this talk is to present a mathematical model of this phenomenon.
