Degenerative vs Rigidity on Mitral Valve Leaflet Using Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) Model
The objectives of this study are to observe the deformation of mitral leaflet in systole condition and compare the rigidity of heart valve leaflet during systole and diastole conditions. Two-dimensional model of the mitral valve leaflet with ventricle were created using fluid structure interaction model in computational simulations. The result shows rigidity of heart valve leaflet always opposite to degeneration and the simulated displacement models corresponded to normal deformation in physical heart valve in systole condition. Modeling simulation techniques are very useful in the study of degenerative heart valve and the findings would allow us to optimize feature and geometries to reduced deformation of heart valve failure.
