Stress Analysis of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Leaflets Under Dynamic Loading

Dr. Ali Azadani

In order to accommodate transcatheter valves to miniaturized catheters, the leaflet thickness must be reduced to a value which is typically less than that of surgical bioprostheses. The study aim was to use finite-element simulations to determine the impact of the thickness reduction on stress and strain distribution.
