A three-beam laser Doppler anemometer system was used to study the flow fields created by various types of mitral heart valve prostheses under conditions of physiological pulsatile flow. The prosthetic valves studied were the Beall caged-disc valve, Björk-Shiley tilting disc valve, Medtronic-Hall tilting disc valve, and St. Jude bileaflet valve. The results… CONTINUE READING
