Image-based Estimation of Strains after Aortic Valve Stent Implantation


Background Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) is a safe and efficient alternative to conventional treatment of high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis [1]. A stented xenograft valve is implanted inside the native aortic valve, pushing the leaflets and calcifications on the leaflet against the vascular wall. A tight fit between the stent… (More)
