Modelling left ventricular function under assist device support

Abstract:

Numerical simulations provide a unique approach for investigating the impact of left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) on the pump function of the heart. To this end, the fictitious domain (FD) method was incorporated within a non-conforming coupled fluid-solid mechanics solver creating a model capable of capturing the full range of cardiac motion under LVAD support, including contact of the cannula with the ventricular wall. To demonstrate and verify the properties of the applied method, co...
