Research Area

Josh is working in the area of Traumatic Liver Injury (TLI). He will investigate the TLI problem both experimental and numerically. For experimental study, Josh will visit Grenoble Alps University, France.  The liver, an encapsulated and fragile organ, is one of the most commonly injured solid organs in blunt abdominal trauma. It represents a potentially serious event with high morbidity and mortality rates. In occidental countries, abdominal trauma results mostly from non-penetrating injuries, such as, road accidents (in more than 50% of cases), sports activities (ski, mountain bike, horse riding), and other epigastric or side impacts (fall, assault,..). Liver injury is an indicator of the severity of abdominal trauma. The risks can be immediate in the event of haemorrhage, and deferred with bile leaks, hepatic necrosis, sepsis or liver insufficiency. The liver is an essential organ and modelling of its trauma is important for development of suitable prevention procedures. Hepatic modelling may allow preoperative forecasts that guide the surgeon in the event of secondary surgical treatment, difficult in a post-traumatic context.
