Regional biaxial mechanical data of the mitral and tricuspid valve anterior leaflets

Data Brief. 2019 May 22;24:103961. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2019.103961. eCollection 2019 Jun.


The collective data associated with this article presents the biaxial mechanical behavior for six smaller, delimited regions of the mitral valve and tricuspid valve anterior leaflets. Each data set consists of five columns of data, specifically: (i) biaxial testing protocol ID, (ii) circumferential stretch, (iii) radial stretch, (iv) circumferential membrane tension, and (v) radial membrane tension. For further elaboration regarding methodologies or results of the biaxial mechanical characterization please refer to the companion article Laurence, 2019.
