Principles of Heart Valve Engineering is the first comprehensive resource for heart valve engineering that covers a wide range of topics, including biology, epidemiology, imaging and cardiovascular medicine. It focuses on valves, therapies, and how to develop safer and more durable artificial valves. The book is suitable for an interdisciplinary audience, with contributions from bioengineers and cardiologists that includes coverage of valvular and potential future developments. This book provides an opportunity for bioengineers to study all topics relating to heart valve engineering in a single book as written by subject matter experts.
- Covers the depth and breadth of this interdisciplinary area of research
- Encompasses a wide range of topics, from basic science, to the translational applications of heart valve engineering
- Contains contributions from leading experts in the field that are heavily illustrated

Arash Kheradvar, M.D., Ph.D., FAHA is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Medicine (Cardiology) at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Kheradvar received M.D. from Tehran University of Medical Sciences in 2000 and Ph.D. in Bioengineering in 2006 from Caltech. His research interests are focused on heart valve engineering, cardiac fluid dynamics, and new cardiac imaging technologies. He is the author of two books and over 50 journal articles and the lead inventor of 45 issued and pending patents in cardiovascular area, mainly on heart valve technologies and imaging modalities. He is an elected Fellow to the American Heart Association by two councils of Cardiovascular Radiology and Intervention, and Cardiovascular Surgery and Anesthesia.
Dr. Kheradvar founded KLAB, the Kheradvar research group, in 2007. The lab aims to study to the cardiovascular fundamental problems and devise translational solutions to ultimately help patients with cardiovascular disease by developing better diagnostic tools and more efficient therapeutic devices. KLAB is focused on research areas related to Heart Valve Engineering, Cardiovascular Imaging, and Cardiac Mechanics.
