Cardiac device placement/device simulation/deformation

Key Investigators

Project Description

Pre-operative device placement holds a potential to characterize the anatomical relationship of cardiac device (valve/catheter) to the surrounding structures before actual surgery. The deformation and displacement of the device across the cardia cycle can also be assesed pre-operatively.


  1. Objective A. Creating 3D models of cardiac devices (for example Transcatheter aortic valve/Melody valve/Mitral valve).
  2. Objective B. Simulation of these models in 4-dimensional cine model of heart
  3. Objective C. Calculating degree of displacement and deformation of the models across the cardiac cycle

Approach and Plan

  1. Describe specific steps of what you plan to do to achieve the above described objectives.

Progress and Next Steps

  1. Describe specific steps you have actually done.
