Mitral valve repair
Acute posterior leaflet prolapse of the mitral valve can be surgically or minimal-invasive repaired with various techniques. The comparison of the different repair methods are difficult in-vivo due to limited accessability and differences between patients. To avoid these problems, we are conducting different valve repair methods on mitral valves from pigs and we aim to quantitatively compare different mitral valve repair strategies in terms of flow and pressure conditions in a physiological pulsatile in-vitro setup.
