Ventricular wall stress is an important determinant of myocardial oxygenconsumption (Sarnoff et~al. 1958; Strauer et~al. 1977), ventricular remodeling, and hypertrophy (Grossman 1980), and is necessary for an understanding of both physiological and pathological ventricular mechanics (Yin 1981). Despite recent advancement in measurement techniques and computational modeling, a detailed knowledge of ventricular wall stress (particularly in patients diagnosed with heart disease) remains elusive.
