Aortic Valve Geometry Modeling – Review

   | 30. Dez. 2016


The present work is a review of publications covering computer simulation of aortic valve operation and material properties of aortic valve components studies. Particular attention is paid to the anisotropy of material and geometric properties. The methods of geometric models developing by using specified research methods and/or diagnostic imaging devices are presented. The microstructure of the aortic valve is also described and its impact on material properties definition introduced. The various ways of describing the aortic valve leaflet anisotropic properties are mentioned. Often exploited simplifications and their impact on the simulation results is also presented.
