Modelling chorded prosthetic mitral valves using the immersed boundary method.

Abstract:

The Immersed Boundary (IB) Method is an efficient method of modelling fluid structure interactions. However, it has two main limitations: ease of use and ability to model static loading. In this paper, the method is developed, so that it can efficiently and easily model any multileaflet elastic structure. The structure may include chordae, which attach to the leaflets and continue through the leaflet surfaces. In addition, an external surface pressure may be applied to the leaflets, thus enab...
