The beating motion of the heart wall, to which the major coronary arteries are fixed, is interesting, due to its possible mechanical influence on the flow inside the artery, and hence its effect on atherogenesis [1–2]. In this study, we conducted a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation using a simplified model of the right coronary artery, which deforms with heart contractions. The results are discussed with respect to the local hemodynamics characteristics, particularly the streamline pattern and the wall shear stress distribution.
