Abstract

A finite-element model was used to determine left ventricular regional wall stress (RWS), using ellipsoids of revolution and digitized two-dimensional echocardiograms as data. Analysis revealed changes in the pattern of distribution of RWS depending on overall shape, wall thickness, and size. Correlations between the results and left ventricular physiology are suggested, and future directions for study are outlined.
