We investigated a new surgical technique of trileaflet semilunar valve reconstruction possessing the potential of remaining sufficient and allowing for some growth with the child. Pulsatile flow was produced by a Series piston pump (SuperPump AR; ViVitro Labs, Victoria, Canada), connected to the ventricular chamber. TSVR was achievable in vitro. Hydrodynamic pressure and echocardiographic evaluations demonstrated a sufficient and non-stenotic neo-valve.

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...

A pulsatile hydraulic piston pump (Vivitro Labs, Victoria, Canada) was connected to the tank with semirigid tubing. This pump, positioned outside the scanner room, generated a sinusoidal-like pulsatile waveform with 70-bpm frequency without net flow, resulting in a pressure waveform inside the tank that created contraction of the filled LV phantom with a 300-ms systolic period and 50-mL stroke volume.
