Patient-Based Cardiovascular Device Simulations: From Bench to Bed

About this webinar

First- and second-generation percutaneous pulmonary and aortic valves are available now, and although they already provide a viable option for very sick patients, these devices will require large engineering improvements in the next few years. In January-February 2014, several first-in-human implantations of transcatheter mitral valves were performed.

The mitral valve is regarded as one of the most complex anatomies in the human body, thus making this implant design an enormous challenge.

What you will learn

  • How to use virtual valve implantation to predict patient outcomes
  • The advantages of using simulations
  • Using models to test devices under a number of conditions to assess suitability and positioning
  • How computer simulations compare with actual results
