Design Considerations for the In Vitro Testing of Cardiovascular Prosthesis

Design Considerations for the In Vitro Testing of Cardiovascular Prosthesis Elaine R. Strope, Ph.D. Dynatek Laboratories, Inc. Abstract: Prosthetic cardiovascular devices are unique in that, in addition to the requirement of functioning for nearly a billion cycles or more, failure can result in death of the user. As a result, in vitro testing becomes critically important. The special...

AAMI 24th Annual Meeting Presentation by James C. Conti, Ph.D.

Presentation: Thank you Dr. Gabbay, Dr. Mueller, and thank you for inviting me to this gathering. I am excited and hope that this opens up a new wave of interest in in-vitro durability testing. The usefulness of experimental data is of course dependent upon the reliability of that information, and any scientist or engineer who would be queried concerning this fact would be quick to agree, I am...
