Numerical simulation of a 3 D Bileaflet Mechanical Heart Valve using Fluid-Structure Interaction

Abstract

Because of their long life span and durability, Bileaflet Mechanical Heart Valves (BMHV) are preferred for valve replacement. However, current BMHV designs induce calcification and thromboembolism, which is believed to be due to non-physiological flow and turbulence generated by the valve leaflets. Therefore, numerical flow simulations can provide relevant… (More)
