Description

Heart disease continues to be the number one cause of death on a global scale leaving a huge burden on societies and their public health outlook. The purpose of this research is to quantify new data on the way mitral valve mechanics operate. Specifically studying the biomechanical properties of valve leaflets in coordination with chordae tendineae the intent being an increased understanding of how to prevent Mitral regurgitation (MVr). The data collected will be used to implement new devices into these finite areas giving biomedical engineers increased vision and parameters that will aid in the creation of new cardiac devices.
