BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY The study aim was to develop a three-dimensional coupled fluid-structure finite element model of the aortic valve and root. This model extends previous purely structural finite element models, and represents a significant step toward realistic simulation of the complex interactions among tissue material properties and valvular function. METHODS The aortic root and valve geometry were extracted from magnetic resonance images and imported into the LS-Dyna… CONTINUE READING
