Phase-resolved velocity measurements in the Valsalva sinus downstream of a Transcatheter Aortic Valve.
Two sets of phase resolved PIV measurements were
performed in the Valsalva sinuses of a glass mock aortic root
including three polymeric valve leaflets, before and after the
implant of a Medtronic CoreValve TAVI device. The
experiments were carried out in a hydro-mechanical
cardiovascular pulse duplicator system (Vivitro Superpump
System SP3891) r...
