Current mitral bioprostheses are akin to the aortic valve and therefore abolish the left ventricular (LV) physiological vortex. We evaluated the hemodynamic performance and the effects on intraventricular flow dynamics (IFD) of a novel mitral bioprosthesis that presents an innovative design, mimicking the native valve.
