Cardiac mechanical performance depends upon myocardial tissue elongation and contraction. Deformation, stress and strain within the myofibers provide valuable information about potential tissue adaptation . Specifically, the stress state of the tissue is believed to drive remodeling of the myocardium. Because it is not possible to measure in-vivo stress in the human heart, considerable research has gone into developing patient specific, mathematical models of the heart based on finite element (FE) analysis and cardiac imaging [2, 3]. Stress estimates from these models could yield valuable information about of the material behavior of the myocardium that would provide valuable information for research into cardiac pathologies.
