Temporal profile of pressure difference of LV wall and predicted Young's modulus of the myocardium. (A) Time-dependent pressure difference across the LV. The curved is derived by fitting experimental data; (B) Elastic modulus of LV, which was calculated as isotropic and homogeneous composite made up of muscle and collagen. The modulus was calculated by taking account of temporal profiles of muscle and collagen in LV.
