Evaluation of prosthetic-valved devices by means of numerical simulations
Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
The in vivo evaluation of prosthetic device performance is often difficult, if not impossible. In particular, in order to deal with potential problems such as thrombosis, haemolysis, etc., which could arise when a patient undergoes heart valve replacement, a thorough understanding of the blood flow dynamics inside the devices interacting with natural or composite tissues is required. Numerical simulation, combining both computational fluid and structure dynamics, could provide detaileddoi:10.1098/rsta.2010.0365 pmid:21576165 fatcat:lzjesnyrrrfklemn5greapvlde
