• Material modeling of cardiac valve tissue: Experiments, constitutive analysis and numerical investigation 

      Heyden, Stefanie; Nagler, Andreas; Bertoglio, Cristóbal; Biehler, Jonas; Gee, Michael W.; Wall, Wolfgang A.; Ortiz, Michael (Elsevier, 2015)
      A key element of the cardiac cycle of the human heart is the opening and closing of the four valves. However, the material properties of the leaflet tissues, which fundamentally contribute to determine the mechanical ...
    • Multiphysics modeling of the atrial systole under standard ablation strategies 

      Hörmann, Julia M.; Bertoglio, Cristóbal; Nagler, Andreas; Pfaller, Martin R.; Bourier, Felix; Hadamitzky, Martin; Deisenhofer, Isabel; Wall, Wolfgang A. (Springer, 2017-06)
      The aim of this study was to develop a computational framework to compare the impact of standard ablation concepts on the mechanical performance of the atria, since different line combinations cannot be applied in practice ...
