A mechanical device for aortic compliance modulation: in vitro simulation of aortic dissection treatment.

Abstract

Stanford type A aortic dissection often rapidly leads to death from aortic rupture. We considered the possibility of introducing a passive counterpulsating damper into the dissected aorta in order to limit the physical stress associated with ventricular ejection and increase the diastolic aorto-ventricular pressure gradient. We conceived a damping device… (More)
