Hydrodynamic function of tilting disc prostheses and bileaflet valves in double valve replacement:

To determine the energy loss attributable to prosthetic valve size and design in double valve replacement, energy consumption of mitral valves (size #25 to #29), of two different designs (Bjork Shiley tilting disc and Carbomedics bileaflet valves), in combination with a small (#21) and large sized (#27) aortic prosthesis, were analyzed in a flow simulator.
