Modeling of Flow Through the Mitral Valve
Modeling of Flow Through the Mitral ValveAssessment of ventricular function and quantification of valve stenosis and mitral regurgitation are important in clinical practice as well as in physiological research (Thomas and Weyman, 1989, 1991; Takeuchi et al., 1991; Thomas et al., 1997; Scalia et al., 1997; Rich et al., 1999; Firstenberg et al., 2001; DeMey et al., 2001; Garcia et al., 2001). Approximately 400,000 patients are diagnosed with congestive heart failure in the United States each year. Elevated diastolic filling pressure in these patients leads to the development of congestive heart failure symptoms (Jae et al., 1997). Noninvasive assessment of diastolic function that does not require the use of intracardiac pressure has been an important goal, and …
