Myocardial tissue regeneration techniques are being developed for the potential that viable myocardium may be regenerated to replace scar tissues in the heart or used as patch material in heart surgery . The material property of the patch on which myocardium cells are placed has important impact on cell adhesion and multiplication . Fluid-structure interaction (FSI) models for canine heart with patch was introduced to quantify regional flow and mechanical conditions in the patch area and investigate the influence of the different patch materials on myocardium regeneration.
