Abstract

T forskning, PalleJuulJensens Boulevard, Aarhus N, Denmark
Background Tricuspid annuloplasty rings are routinely applied clinically. An optimal ring should reconstruct the valve annulus to its original configuration and adapt natural annular motion. However, there is still a lack of knowledge for a rational design. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between tricuspid valve annular geometry and deformational forces out-of-plane (substudy 1) and in-plane (substudy 2) using a porcine model
