Active contraction of the cardiac ventricle and distortion of the microstructural architecture.

Abstract

The shortening of the myocardial fibers is the microstructural engine that produces the contraction of the cardiac muscle. The complex interplay between fibers shortening and elastic macroscopic strain is functional to the ejection of blood into the pulmonary and arterial networks. Here, we address the contraction of the left ventricle in a finite… (More)
