Effect of bending rigidity in a dynamic model of a polyurethane prosthetic mitral valve.

Abstract:

We investigate the behaviour of a dynamic fluid-structure interaction model of a chorded polyurethane mitral valve prosthesis, focusing on the effects on valve dynamics of including descriptions of the bending stiffnesses of the valve leaflets and artificial chordae tendineae. Each of the chordae is attached at one end to the valve annulus and at the other to one of two chordal attachment points. These attachment points correspond to the positions where the chords of the real prosthesis would...
