Aortic valve leaflet wall shear stress characterization revisited: impact of coronary flow.


Computational characterizations of aortic valve hemodynamics have typically discarded the effects of coronary flow. The objective of this study was to complement our previous fluid-structure interaction aortic valve model with a physiologic coronary circulation model to quantify the impact of coronary flow on aortic sinus hemodynamics and leaflet wall shear… (More)
