Recent work has demonstrated substantial progress in capabilities for patient-specific cardiovascular flow simulations. In particular, pediatric cardiology is a field that stands to benefit particularly from patient specific simulations and design capabilities due to the large variation in anatomy among patients and challenging hemodynamics. Recent simulations in pediatric cardiology have emphasized the importance of exercise and respiration, and have been used to test newly proposed surgical designs.
