Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation is used to identify areas within the left ventricle following transcatheter mitral valve replacement that present haemodynamic conditions known to promote thrombus formation. The methodology is applied to two patients who required different devices, with two variations in deployment height for each subject. Blood residence time, Lagrangian particle tracking, wall shear stress and oscillatory shear index provide insight into ventricle haemodynamics and can be used to identify regions of potential device-induced thrombosis.
