Three-Dimensional Numeric Simulation of Flow Through an Aortic Bileaflet Valve in a Realistic Model of Aortic Root

A three-dimensional, realistic model of an aortic mechanical heart valve and Valsalva sinuses was developed to predict, by means of a numerical time dependent simulation, the flow field during a fraction of the systolic period. The numeric simulation was performed upon a model of valve similar to a Carbomedics 27 mm placed in a physiologic aortic root shaped model,...
