This paper describes the application of computer testing to a design study of butterfly bileaflet mitral prostheses having flat or curved leaflets. The curvature is in the plane normal to the pivot axes and is such that the convex sides of the leaflets face each other when the valve is open. The design parameters considered are the curvature of the leaflets and the location of the pivot points. In this study, stagnation is assessed by computing the smallest value (over the three openings of the… CONTINUE READING
