Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) models combining morphological realism, aortic valve mechanical properties and aortic root (AR) fluid dynamic behaviour throughout the cardiac cycle were developed. Computed hemodynamic alterations were consistent with the region of the ascending aorta (AA) usually affected by tissue degeneration and dissection.

Abstract

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) models combining morphological realism, aortic valve mechanical properties and aortic root (AR) fluid dynamic behaviour throughout the cardiac cycle were developed. Computed hemodynamic alterations were consistent with the region of the ascending aorta (AA) usually affected by tissue degeneration and dissection. Stress alterations may induce aortic valve (AV) leaflets thickening and calcification characterizing BAVs in adults.
