Patient-specific models have been recently applied to investigate a wide range of cardiovascular problems including cardiac mechanics, hemodynamic conditions and structural interaction with devices . The development of dedicated computational tools which combined the advances in the field of image elaboration, finite element (FE) and computational fluid-dynamic (CFD) analyses has greatly supported not only the understanding of human physiology and pathology, but also the improvement of specific interventions taking into account realistic conditions [2, 3]. However, the translation of these technologies into clinical applications is still a major challenge for the engineering modeling community, which has to compromise between numerical accuracy and response time in order to meet the clinical needs . Hence, the validation of in silico against in vivo results is crucial. Finally, if the development of novel tools has recently attracted big investments , it has not been similarly easy to dedicate funds and time to test the developed technologies on large numbers of patient cases.
