Longitudinal differences in the mechanical properties of the thoracic aorta depend on circumferential regions.


Understanding the mechanical behavior of the arterial wall and its spatial variations is essential for the study of vascular physiopathology and the design of biomedical devices that interact with the arterial wall. Although it is generally accepted that the aortic wall gets stiffer along its length, the spatial variations in the mechanical behavior of the… (More)
