By Roustem N. Miftahof, Hong Gil Nam

The complexity of human uterine functionality and rules is among the nice wonders of nature and represents a frightening problem to solve. This ebook is devoted to the biomechanical modeling of the gravid human uterus and offers an instance of the appliance of the mechanics of solids and the idea of sentimental shells to discover scientific difficulties of work and supply. After a quick assessment of the anatomy, body structure and biomechanics of the uterus, the authors concentration frequently on electromechanical wave methods, their starting place, dynamics, and neuroendocrine and pharmacological modulations. within the final bankruptcy purposes, pitfalls and difficulties on the topic of modeling and computing device simulations of the pregnant uterus and pelvic ground constructions are mentioned. a set of routines is additional on the finish of every bankruptcy to assist readers with self-evaluation.

The publication serves as a useful resource of knowledge for researchers, teachers and complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars attracted to platforms biology, utilized arithmetic and biomedical engineering.

2002; Price and Bernal 2001; Yuan and Bernal 2007). Progesterone and adrenaline stimulate PKA via the cAMP-dependent pathway. PKA further phosphorylates MLCK and hence, attenuates its affinity for the Ca2+–calmodulin complex resulting, finally, in dissociation of the actin–myosin complexes. The protein also promotes desensitization of Gaq receptors, decreases gap junction permeability, and inhibits the phospholipase C pathway with a cumulative effect of myometrial relaxation (Price and Bernal 2001; Yuan and Bernal 2007).

3. Slow wave electrical activity is an intrinsic phenomenon and has been observed in smooth muscle cells of the small intestine, colon, trachea, etc. It provides stability for the propagation of excitation and the coordination of motility. What are physiological bases for oscillatory activity in the human myometrium?. 4. The question of the “pacemaker”, its morphological identity, electrophysiological properties and function has always captivated biologists. Pacemaker cells have not yet been found in the human uterus, although experiments and clinical data demonstrate that the excitation normally originates at the uterotubal junctions.

13) where Pn is the internal amniotic fluid pressure, r1 ; r2 ; f and c are geometric parameters, lf and ly are the stretch ratios, and Nf and Ny are the in-plane forces per unit length in the longitudinal and circumferential directions, respectively. 15) The lower segment and the apex of the uterus were clamped and the organ maintained axial symmetry throughout. The effect of physical nonlinearities and the initial configuration on intrauterine pressure and volume were analyzed. Weiss et al.
