A workflow to perform fast preoperative risk assessment of paravalvular leakage (PVL) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is presented in this paper. Physiological pressure and flow conditions in the aortic root are generated using a commercial pulse duplicator system from ViVitro Labs Inc. (Victoria, Canada). This model can be used to calculate the regurgitant volume after TAVR at reduced cost.

Aortic valve stenosis is the third most frequent cardiovascular disease in high-income countries after hypertension and coronary artery disease and is associated with increased risk of heart failure and mortality. Contraction of the left ventricle and left atrium were obtained using two ViVitro piston pumps (ViVitro Inc, Victoria, Canada). The results of this in vitro/in silico study suggest that newer generations of THVs have ∼30% lower leaflet mechanical stress than the early generations.

Aneurysms are abnormal expansion of weakened blood vessels which can be debilitating or fatal upon rupture. Previous studies have shown that hemodynamics play a role in aneurysm formation, growth and rupture. Therefore, the objective of this work is to investigate the impact of flow structures on vortex strength, impinging location, and wall shear stress for two aneurysm models. ...The inflow parameters used in this study, and , were controlled using a ViVitro Labs Inc. SuperPump system... ...The flow evolution results showed that impacted the vortex formation, growth, and dissipation processes for the studied aneurysm model...

The aim of the study was to study the complex biomechanics of the aortic valve prosthesis and to analyze the effect of frame mobility on the stress-strain state and geometry of the valve leaflet apparatus using a numerical simulation method, which reproduces the qualitative and quantitative results of its bench tests. ...The simulation was validated by comparing the results of numerical and bench simulation on the ViVitro Labs hydrodynamic system (ViVitro Labs Inc., Canada)... ...The results of the UniLine prosthesis biomechanics modeling have demonstrated that mobility of the frame struts of the heart valve prosthesis is a crucial aspect in assessing the effectiveness of the leaflet apparatus geometry and may be a negative factor in case of a highly elastic leaflet material...
