PURPOSE To determine the pattern of strain and pressure transmitted to an aortic aneurysm wall before and after endovascular exclusion and to evaluate the role of sac thrombus on the conduction of pressure and wall strain. METHODS Three canine thoracic aortas were used to create abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). The segments were placed on a pulsatile pump system, and 8 strain transducers were positioned in the aneurysm sac. Baseline strain/pressure (S/P) was recorded in 1 animal, then the… CONTINUE READING
