Abstract

An emerging class of models has been developed in recent years to predict cardiac growth and remodeling. We recently developed a cardiac constitutive model that predicts remodeling in response to elevated hemodynamics loading, and a subsequent reversal of the remodeling process when the loading is reduced. Here, we describe the integration of this model to an existing strongly coupled electromechanical model of the heart.
