Numerical simulation of a transcatheter aortic valve

In a transcatheter percutaneous aortic valve implantation (TAVI), the interaction of blood, stent and aorta are of central importance to determine implants lifetime.
CADFEM (Suisse) AG and ADMEDES SCHUESSLER GmbH developed together a numerical modeling procedure using commercial software to consider stent crimping and release against the aortic wall followed by a fluid-structure transient simulation during one systolic pulse.
