The fluid dynamics of heart valves: experimental, theoretical, and computational methods.

Charles S. Peskin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An analysis of the function of heart valves in the cardiac cycle is made. The function of the valves on the left side of the heart is reviewed, which shows schematically the pressures, flows, and valve positions of the nitral (inflow) and aortic (outflow) valves of the left ventricle.
