  • Patient specific computational models of aortic valve and root dynamics are useful tools for the development of precise treatment schemes. Each year thousands of people worldwide undergo procedures relating to diseased valves. Applying such technology in resource constrained areas to improve the quality of care is a moral imperative for researchers in the field to construct a smaller care differential in global health care quality. However, model construction is a difficult process due to a combination of unstructured input data and heterogeneous computation environments. In this work, we develop a patient specific aortic root model while considering applications for testing medical devices. We further describe a novel method for model construction. We discuss the process of development and implementation of these models as well as the results of the computations.
