Aim of the study: In a healthy heart, the mechano-electric feedback (MEF) process acts as an intrinsic regulatory mechanism of the myocardium which allows the normal cardiac contraction by damping mechanical perturbations in order to generate a new healthy electromechanical situation. However, under certain conditions, the MEF can be a generator of dramatic arrhythmias by inducing local electrical depolarizations as a result of abnormal cardiac tissue deformations, via stretch-activated channels (SACs). Then, these perturbations can propagate in the whole heart and lead to global cardiac dysfunctions. In the present study, we qualitatively investigate the influence of temperature on autonomous electrical activity generated by the MEF. Method: We introduce a one-dimensional time-dependent model containing all the key ingredients that allow accounting for the excitation-contraction coupling, the MEF and the thermoelectric coupling. Results: Our simulations show that an autonomous electrical activity can be induced by cardiac deformations, but only inside a certain temperature interval. In addition, in some cases, the autonomous electrical activity takes place in a periodic way like a pacemaker. We also highlight that some properties of action potentials, generated by the mechano-electric feedback, are significantly influenced by temperature. Moreover, in the situation where a pacemaker activity occurs, we also show that the period is heavily temperature-dependent. Conclusions: Our qualitative model shows that the temperature is a significant factor with regards to the electromechanical behavior of the heart and more specifically, with regards to the autonomous electrical activity induced by the cardiac tissue deformations.

A minimal cardiovascular system (CVS) model including mitral valve dynamics has been previously validated in silico. However parameters of this model are difficult to link with structural and anatomical components of the valve.

Valve dysfunction is a common cardiovascular pathology. Despite significant clinical research, there is little formal study of how valve dysfunction affects overall circulatory dynamics. Validated models would offer the ability to better understand these dynamics and thus optimize diagnosis, as well as surgical and other interventions. A cardiovascular and circulatory system (CVS) model has already been validated in silico, and in several animal model studies. It accounts for valve dynamics using Heaviside functions to simulate a physiologically accurate “open on pressure, close on flow” law. However, it does not consider real-time valve opening dynamics and therefore does not fully capture valve dysfunction, particularly where the dysfunction involves partial closure. This research describes an updated version of this previous closed-loop CVS model that includes the progressive opening of the mitral valve, and is defined over the full cardiac cycle. Simulations of the cardiovascular system with healthy mitral valve are performed, and, the global hemodynamic behaviour is studied compared with previously validated results. The error between resulting pressure-volume (PV) loops of already validated CVS model and the new CVS model that includes the progressive opening of the mitral valve is assessed and remains within typical measurement error and variability. Simulations of ischemic mitral insufficiency are also performed. Pressure-Volume loops, transmitral flow evolution and mitral valve aperture area evolution follow reported measurements in shape, amplitude and trends. The resulting cardiovascular system model including mitral valve dynamics provides a foundation for clinical validation and the study of valvular dysfunction in vivo. The overall models and results could readily be generalised to other cardiac valves. [less ▲]

Recently, the influence of thermal processes on electrophysiology has clearly been underlined, using a FitzHugh–Nagumo-type (FHN-type) model. When the temperature is raised, the action potential duration (APD) has been shown to shorten, while the action potential (AP) amplitude decreases, and the conduction velocity increases. In the present study, we investigate the effects of thermoelectric coupling on mechano-electric feedback (MEF), and more specifically, on pacemaker activity generated by MEF. To investigate these effects, thermoelectric coupling is introduced in a one-dimensional ring-shaped electromechanical model of cardiac fiber, which takes into account excitation-contraction coupling (ECC), as well as MEF.

This research presents a new closed-loop cardiovascular system model including a description of the progressive opening and closing dynamic of the mitral valve. Furthermore, this model includes a mathematical description of the left atrium. This new CVS model enables the study of valve dysfunction in the appropriate clinical context of the overall cardiac and circulatory hemodynamics. [less ▲]

The mechano-electric feedback (MEF) in the heart consists in the influence of the tissue deformations on the cardiac electrical activity. Under certain conditions, tissue deformations can generate electrical perturbations via stretch-activated channels, such that the membrane potential can exceed the threshold value needed in order to trigger cardiac action potentials (APs). In the present study, we have developed a one-dimensional ring-shaped model of cardiac fiber taking into account three different couplings: the excitation-contraction coupling (ECC), the MEF and the thermoelectric coupling (TEC). The main goal of this work is to examine the effects of the TEC on the different properties of the pacemaker activity generated by the MEF. [less ▲]

This study treats an evaporating horizontal binary-liquid layer in contact with the air with an imposed transfer distance. The liquid is an aqueous solution of ethanol (10 % wt). Due to evaporation, the ethanol mass fraction can change and a cooling occurs at the liquid-gas interface. This can trigger solutal and thermal Rayleigh-B´enard-Marangoni instabilities in the system, the modes of which corresponding to an undeformable interface form the subject of the present work. The decrease of the liquid-layer thickness is assumed to be slow on the diffusive time scales (quasi-stationarity). First we analyse the stability of quasistationary reference profiles for a model case within which the mass fraction of ethanol is assumed to be fixed at the bottom of the liquid. Then this consideration is generalized by letting the diffusive reference profile for the mass fraction in the liquid be transient (starting from a uniform state), while following the frozen-time approach for perturbations. The critical liquid thickness below which the system is stable at all times quite expectedly corresponds to the one obtained for the quasi-stationary profile. As a next step, a more realistic, zero-flux condition is used at the bottom in lieu of the fixed-concentration one. The critical thickness is found not to change much between these two cases. At larger thicknesses, the critical time at which the instability first appears proves, as can be expected, to be independent of the type of the concentration condition at the bottom. It is shown that solvent (water) evaporation plays a stabilizing role as compared to the case of a non-volatile solvent. At last, an effective approximate Pearson-like model is invoked making use in particular of the fact that the solutal Marangoni is by far the strongest as an instability mechanism here. [less ▲]

Models and simulations are very useful to study interactions between anatomic structures and physical cardiac phenomena. In this work, we are interested in models of the instantaneous pressure-volume relationship, i.e. isochrone models. More precisely, we concentrate on the 6 models considered by Lankhaar et al. [1]. We propose a critical analysis of the work of these authors and suggest some improvement of their procedure. [1] Lankhaar J.-W. et al.
