So I am doing a project for an advanced fluids class where I plan to do a CFD analysis of two different prosthetic heart valves, the bi-leaflet valve and the ball and cage (star-edwards). I cannot seem to find the technical specifications or drawings that I need in order to make a good cad model. Does anybody know where I might find such info? Thanks

Perhaps the Patent US4935030, for the bi-leaflet valve would get you started?

I wonder if the Starr-Edwards may have expired, it is mentioned in some more recent patents but I couldn't find it in a quick search.
