Cardiovascular diseases are among the highest causes of death, and although much is known about their effects, [1] deeper aspects of their onset and progress are still a matter of study. Modeling of arterial networks in living organisms is often aimed at by researchers in the medical field as a tool to investigate these phenomena or to study how certain controlled effects might evolve in an organism. Due to the difficulty of experimental research in vivo, artificial models [2] are of great value in investigating the behavior of these interactions in the system under physiological or pathophysiological conditions.
