BACKGROUND Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is an established treatment for high-risk patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis. It is well-known that leaflet shape has a key role in hemodynamic performance and durability of bioprosthetic valves. Excessive mechanical stress on transcatheter aortic valve (TAV) leaflets may lead to accelerated tissue degeneration and diminished longterm valve durability. Recently, model-based design of medical devices using computational… CONTINUE READING
