A Review on Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling in Human Thoracic Aorta
It has long been recognized that the forces and stresses produced by the blood flow on the walls of the cardiovascular system are central to the development of different cardiovascular diseasesExpand

Evaluation of transcatheter heart valve biomaterials: Biomechanical characterization of bovine and porcine pericardium.
OBJECTIVE Bovine pericardium (BP) has been identified as a choice biomaterial for the development of surgical bioprosthetic heart valves (BHV) and transcatheter aortic valves (TAV). PorcineExpand

Fully-coupled fluid-structure interaction simulation of the aortic and mitral valves in a realistic 3D left ventricle model
In this study, we present a fully-coupled fluid-structure interaction (FSI) framework that combines smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) and nonlinear finite element (FE) method to investigate theExpand

Modeling Left Ventricular Blood Flow Using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics
This study aims to investigate the capability of smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH), a fully Lagrangian mesh-free method, to simulate the bulk blood flow dynamics in two realistic left ventricularExpand

Evaluation of transcatheter heart valve biomaterials: Computational modeling using bovine and porcine pericardium.
OBJECTIVE The durability of bioprosthetic heart valve (BHV) devices, commonly made of bovine (BP) and porcine (PP) pericardium tissue, is partly limited by device calcification and tissueExpand

New insights into mitral heart valve prolapse after chordae rupture through fluid–structure interaction computational modeling
Mitral valve (MV) dynamics depends on a force balance across the mitral leaflets, the chordae tendineae, the mitral annulus, the papillary muscles and the adjacent ventricular wall. Chordae ruptureExpand
