Finite Element Modeling of Cardiac Pacing/Defibrillation Lead Interaction with Heart
The hyperelastic constitutive model of cardiac muscle is developed based on the animal surgical operation and mechanical experiments from the heart of the dogs, and the relaxation phenomena is also studied based on the Hill three elements model which is viscoelastic. Some numerical simulations are presented by finite element for the cardiac pacing/defibrillation lead interaction with muscles of the heart.
