Abstract

The time averaged equation of motion is used to calculate the area of a stenotic mitral valve. The components of the discharge coefficient are analyzed with respect to the unique configuration of the valve and the surrounding ventricle, and the exact equation is used as the basis of an error analysis of the Gorlin equation. Measurements of transmitral pressures and flow in the dog indicate that despite errors inherent in its derivation and application, the Gorlin equation provides a reasonably good estimate of the stenotic mitral area.
