Frank-Starling law, which describes a relation between cardiac contraction energy and end-diastolic volume, is of importance, but the detailed mechanism is not quantitatively understood yet. In this paper, the mechanism of a linear relation between end-diastolic volume and end-systolic pressure as a part of Frank-Starling law is analyzed by means of computer simulation. A hemodynamics model, which is constructed by composing a vascular system model, a left ventricular dynamics model and a myocardial cell model, reproduced a linear relation between end-diastolic volume and end-systolic pressure successfully. In this paper, the simulation results and the detailed analysis are reported.
