Performance of TAVI valves: What happens when a prosthetic heart valve is implanted in a patient? What impact does it have on the hemodynamic and the biomechanical conditions? Will it affect the work load of the heart and how?
Impact of aortic valve on the stress distribution of the aortic root: Using a custom-made flow simulator, it is now possible to study how aortic surgery may affect the long-term function of the heart. This can potentially lead the way to better treatment for certain heart disease patients.
