Abstract

Two prosthetic aortic valves (a Bjork-Shiley and a Ionescu-Shiley Pericaridal Xenograft) were studied in the aortic chamber of a pulse duplication system. Valves should be designed to minimize closure backflow it is equally important to design valves with minimal leakage backflow since at low heart rates, leakage is the predominant factor.
