OBJECTIVE We sought to examine in age-matched subjects the biomechanical and compositional remodeling associated with ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms according to region and direction. METHODS(More)
Ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms (ATAA) were resected from patients during graft replacement and non-aneurysmal vessels during autopsy. Tissues were histomechanically tested according to region(More)
The selection of a mathematical descriptor for the passive arterial mechanical behavior has been long debated in the literature and customarily constrained by lack of pertinent data on the underlying(More)
