For the design of aortic valve prostheses with a separation-free flow field and minimum pressure drop the geometry of the aortic root is of high importance, since an appropriate adjustment of the prostheses to the surrounding geometry could largely reduce the risk of thromboembolic complications. For the investigation of the geometry of the aortic root 604 angiographic films out of a total stock of 15,000 of the Medical Clinic I were evaluated. The film material was preclassified into five… CONTINUE READING
