Aortic valve stenosis represents an important public health problem which can be treated through transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Being a quite recent technology, many aspects related to such a minimallyinvasive procedure need further investigation (e.g., paravalvular leakage). The well-established finite element method represents a possible technology to study such aspects within a virtual computer-based framework.

Abstract

Aortic valve stenosis represents an important public health problem which can be treated through transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Being a quite recent technology, many aspects related to such a minimallyinvasive procedure need further investigation (e.g., paravalvular leakage). The well-established finite element method represents a possible technology to study such aspects within a virtual computer-based framework. Herein, we propose a patient-specific study which includes native leaflets and calcifications with the goal of evaluating the postoperative performance of the implanted prosthetic valve
