Default OpenFOAM and immersed boundary for cardiovascular problems

EmiS is on a distinguished road

I am considering OpenFOAM and its immersed boundary solver to to simulate blood flow through an aortic valve. In simple terms, the geometry is a tube which has thin leaflets inside. These leaflets undergo large periodic deformation. Do you think that OpenFOAM is currently capable of simulating such a problem?

I am aware of OpenFOAM Extend, but I have not found any references to work performing a similar simulation.

Thank you,
