The design of the normal aortic valve.

Abstract

The design parameters of the natural aortic valve in vivo were not known, which may explain why various bioprosthetic valves have been designed differently. The design of the aortic valve was studied in vivo by placing radiopaque markers in the valve. The marker movement revealed that, during a cardiac cycle, the design parameters of the valve were changing… (More)
