Abstract

Regional wall mechanics were analyzed in a finite element model of the canine left ventricle that included measured three-dimensional geometry and myofiber angles, nonlinear anisotropic material properties, calcium-activated systolic myofilament tension development, and the newly reported observation of significant active stress transverse to the myofiber axis. Strain distributions in the model agreed well with experimental measurements in anesthetized dogs during LAD coronary artery occlusion.
