Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A computational parametric model was developed to evaluate the hemodynamics of the mitral valve following the edge-to-edge technique. The pressure drop across the valve was quantified under different conditions. Further, the reliability of the Doppler pressure drop was verified based on the simplified Bernoulli equation.
