Development of an In Vitro Model to Characterize the Effects of Transcatheter Aortic Valve on Coronary Artery Flow

Impairment of coronary artery flow, in either acute or chronic conditions, is a severe complication of transcatheter aortic valve (TAV) implantation, which can arise due to improper TAV positioning. ... LHS. An LHS was designed with the intention of providing physiological flow and pressure waveforms in the left atrium, left ventricle (LV), and ascending aorta, similar to commercially available devices such as the ViVitro LHS (ViVitro Labs, Victoria, Canada) but with additional ...
