Description
  • Abstract: Heart valves are functionally complex, making surgical repair difficult. Simulation-based surgical planning could facilitate repair, but current finite element (FE) studies are prohibitively slow for rapid, clinically-oriented simulations. An anisotropic, nonlinear mass-spring (M-S) model is presented to approximate the membrane behavior of heart valve leaflet tissue, and it is coupled w... read more
