Patient-specific models in medicine offer an emerging technology for simulation of disease progression and clinical interventions. Such simulations have the potential to offer clinical decision support, and to strengthen evidence-based medical decisions. In this seminar, we present our work on a framework for patient-specific simulation of left ventricular (LV) hemodynamics [1, 2]. In particular, we focus on the extension of the pre-existing LV model with a simple planar, data-driven parameterized model of the mitral valve (MV).
