Abstract

The single most common cause of death in western culture is ischemic heart disease, which results from insufficient coronary artery blood flow. A numerical left ventricular model was developed to detect the abnormal wall motion by analyzing the velocity field inside of the left ventricle. The aim of this study is to validate the numerical model by comparing its results with the experiment results. There was good qualitative agreement between the experimental and numerical results.
