Chapter 29 Anterior Leaflet Stiffness
2016 (English)In: Mitral Valve Mechanics / [ed] Neil B Ingels, Jr and Matts Karlsson, Linköping University Electronic Press, 2016, 29.1-29.7 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
In Chapters 09 and 13 we showed that the anterior leaflet in the closed valve maintains a nearly invariant shape and position in the ventricle as the leaflet is subjected to the large and variable trans-leaflet pressures in the beating heart. This implies that the leaflets must be quite stiff ̶ and this stiffness depends on leaflet shape, boundary conditions, and elastic moduli.
