The mechanism of bitemporal hemianopia is still unclear. Previous research suggested that the nerve fibre packing pattern may contribute to the selective damage of nasal (crossed) nerve fibres. Numerical models were built using finite element modelling to study the biomechanics of optic nerve fibres. The sensitivity of the mechanical behaviours of the nerve fibres to variations of five parameters in the nerve fibre model were investigated using design of experiments (DOE). Results show that the...[Show more]
