  • Materialise Webinar April 15: Patient-Based Cardiovascular Device Simulations

    Learn about patient-specific finite element simulations in preparation for transcatheter aortic valve implantation.

    Percutaneous pulmonary and aortic valves are available as first and second generation now, and although they already provide a viable option for very sick patients, these devices will require large engineering improvements in the next years.

    Finite element analysis (FEA) and computantional fluid dynamics (CFD) provide a powerful engineering tool for virtual device deployment. These tools are making their way from academia into the engineering departments of medical device companies and even into the clinical patient planning.

    This webinar will feature Matthieu De Beule from FEops, a spin-off company from the renowned biomedical engineering group of IBiTech-bioMMeda at the University of Ghent, Belgium. FEops uses the Mimics Innovation Suite to understand deployment mechanisms and predict potential clinical problems using patient-specific simulations. FEops is on the brink of releasing their clinical planning tool for transcatheter aortic valve implantation...
