Steady Flow Testing – Stent Post Deflection
The deflection of the stent lateral struts (post) is measured when subjected to different back-pressures.
When a prosthetic cardiac valve is closed due to an adverse pressure, some fluid is flowing back through the valve. The volume of fluid coming back during this phase will have to be compensated by an increase of ejection volume of the heart. The higher the back-flow, the higher the energy the heart has to provide to produce a supplementary forward flow. The study aims to characterize static leakage flow across the valves when subjected to different back pressures following ISO 5840 requirements.
