Impact of Aortic Grafts on Arterial Pressure: A Computational Fluid Dynamics Study
Objective: Vascular prostheses currently used in vascular surgery do not have the same mechanical properties as human arteries. This computational study analyses the mechanisms by which grafts, placed in the ascending aorta (proximal) and descending aorta (distal), affect arterial blood pressure.
