Velocity measurements were made in vitro using laser Doppler anemometry (LDA) downstream from an lonescu-Shiley (IS) bioprosthetic aortic heart valve. Velocity measurements were made in both steady and pulsatile flow. A systematic, flow mapping approach to the measurement methodology showed that the IS valve generated a large jetlike flow constriction. The(More)
The turbulence generated downstream from an aortic Ionescu-Shiley bioprosthesis has been investigated in vitro with both steady and pulsatile flow; Instantaneous point velocities were measured using laser-Doppler anemometry (LDA) at numerous preselected locations in the flow. The mean and RMS velocities from these data at each location were then used to(More)
The velocity fields downstream of four prosthetic heart valves were mapped in vitro over the entire cross-section of a model aortic root using laser Doppler anemometry. THe Björk-Shiley 60 degrees convexo-concave tilting disc valve, the Smeloff-Cutter caged ball valve, the St. Jude Medical bileaflet valve, and the Ionescu-Shiley standard bioprosthesis were(More)
