Abstract

The physiological and pathological conditions in the human cardiovascular system were investigated. The hemodynamic conditions after edge-to-edge mitral valve repair were also examined. The steady-state pressure-flow relationship of the mitral valve models was determined with the help of a hydraulic mock loop. It was found that the results of the investigation could be used for surgical decision making in order to predict the outcome of surgical treatments for an individual patient.
