Experimental and Computational Investigation of Altered Mechanical Properties in Myocardium after Hydrogel Injection

Abstract

The material properties of myocardium are an important determinant of global left ventricular function. Myocardial infarction results in a series of maladaptive geometric alterations which lead to increased stress and risk of heart failure. In vivo studies have demonstrated that material injection can mitigate these changes. More importantly, the material… (More)
