Med Biol Eng Comput 50:1071-9. 2012..This confirms that the layered composite approximation presented in the current study is able to capture the exponential stiffening seen in both the circumferential and radial directions of mitral leaflets...
- Biventricular finite element modeling of the Acorn CorCap Cardiac Support Device on a failing heartJonathan F Wenk
Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky, USA
Ann Thorac Surg 95:2022-7. 2013..However, the effects of the Acorn CSD on myofiber stress and ventricular function remain unknown. We tested the hypothesis that the Acorn CSD reduces end-diastolic (ED) myofiber stress...
