A finite element scheme has been developed using total Lagrangian techniques for the two-dimensional analysis of bioprosthetic heart valve leaflets undergoing large deformation. Two models of a leaflet, namely a radial and a circumferential slice, have been analysed. The attachment of the slice to the stent was simulated by progressive contact on a circular former and the coaptation of the leaflets in the centre of a heart valve by a straight line of contact. For the circumferential model… CONTINUE READING
