1. Excel files:

  • ED_ES_Strain_injectate.xlsx: End systolic/diastolic maximum and minimum principal strain for injectate
  • ED_ES_Strain_myocardium.xlsx: End systolic/diastolic myofibre and cross-fibre strain in the myocardium

2. Word document: ED_ES_Strain_statistical data.docx

  • End systolic and end diastolic descriptive statistics values in the myocarduim and the injectate region for Einj = 4.1 to 405900 kPa
  • Each table contains the mean, median, first and third quartile values from strain distribution
  • The data were obtained for (i) myofibre and cross-fibre strain (in myocardium) and (ii) maximum and minimum principal strain (in the injectate region)

3. Abaqus CAE file: BV_Model.cae

  • Abaqus file with the model details
  • Material parameters for the injectate and the myocarduim are implemented 

4. Python files (as zip archive): 

  • \Python Codes Ploting Box plots\Injectate\
  • loads strain data and plot box plot figures of injectate
  • contains function to plot histograms and box plots
  • \Python Codes Ploting Box plots\myocardium\
  • loads strain data and plot box plot figures of myocardium
  • contains function to plot histograms and box plots
