Project: In-vitro testing of prosthetic heart valves and tipcatheters.

project duration
31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
A computer controlled in-vitro model of the left human heart is used to study transmitral flow by Echo-Doppler and to control and moniter determinants of the mitral flow : atrioventricular pressure, preload, afterload, compliance, heart rate. Two case studies will be performed : the evaluation of existing and new prosthetic heart values the evaluation of new pressure measurement systems like tipcatheters.
