FEM-based soft tissue destruction model for ablation simulator

, : FEM-based soft tissue destruction model for ablation simulator. Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 111: 263-269

In surgical procedures, ablation is one of the most difficult skills to train and acquire. For the risk of ablation failure, ablation training environments are desired. This paper proposes FEM-based deformation and destruction soft tissue model for ablation training simulator. The proposed model employs shearing stress hypothesis. The result of simulation experiments shows that the model can express different destruction progression by manipulation.

Resistant F2 and F3 hybrids were bred by backcrossing Prunus cerasus varieties with donors of oligogenic resistance to C. hiemalis [Blumeriella jaapii] derived using Prunus maackii. Some of the promising ones are characterized. Among 1200 hybrids...

One of the most important themes in agricultural science is the identification of virulence factors involved in plant disease. Here, we show that a single virulence factor, tengu-su inducer (TENGU), induces witches' broom and dwarfism and is...
