Arterial dissections may occur spontaneously or traumatic and have been observed in several arterial branches. An aortic dissection, for example, is a tear in the intimal layer of the aorta with dissection along or within the media proximally or distally. Aortic dissections frequently result from an intimal tear (see Thubrikar et al., 1999, and references therein) or from a perforation of the intima as, for example, caused by intramural hemorrhage and hematoma formation (Khan & Nair, 2002… Expand

Geometrical Modeling and Numerical Simulation of Heterogeneous Materials
TLDR
The proposed method is concerned with the simulation of diseased blood vessels and focusses on the reconstruction of patient-specific arterial geometries, and the results of two- and three-dimensional finite element simulations show the field of application of the presented method. Expand

Modeling Plaque Fissuring and Dissection during Balloon Angioplasty Intervention
TLDR
The predicted results indicate that plaque fissuring and dissection cause localized mechanical trauma, but prevent the main portion of the stenosis from high stress, and hence from continuous tissue damage. Expand
Dissection properties of the human aortic media: an experimental study.
TLDR
The present study investigates the dissection properties of the media of 15 human abdominal aortas by means of direct tension tests and peeling tests, finding that peeling in the axial direction of the aorta generates a remarkably "rougher" dissection surface with respect to the surface generated by peaking in the circumferential direction.

Aortic dissection following coronary artery bypass surgery: Diagnosis by CT
We describe an unusual case of aortic dissection causing spinal cord infarction. The dissection arose from an intimal tear at the suture line of a coronary artery bypass graft. CT was used toExpand
The effect of tear depth on the propagation of aortic dissections in isolated porcine thoracic aorta.
TLDR
An in vitro model was used to determine the influence of tear depth on the propagation pressure of aortic dissections and various in vivo factors are discussed which may affect these experimentally determined relationships. Expand
Wall stress as a possible mechanism for the development of transverse intimal tears in aortic dissections.
TLDR
As the aneurysm 'grows', the longitudinal stress in the bulb increases rapidly and could be responsible for the transverse tear in the aortic dissection. Expand
How Does Angioplasy Work?: Serial Analysis of Human Iliac Arteries Using Intravascular Ultrasound
TLDR
In vivo analysis of iliac stenoses by intravascular ultrasound immediately before and after angioplasty demonstrates that plaque fractures and “compression” of atherosclerotic plaque are the principal factors responsible for increased luminal patency resulting from balloon angiopLasty. Expand
Changes in the mechanical environment of stenotic arteries during interaction with stents: computational assessment of parametric stent designs.
TLDR
A methodology that allows a set of stent parameters to be varied, with the aim of evaluating the difference in the mechanical environment within the wall before and after angioplasty with stenting, has the potential to provide a scientific basis for optimizing treatment procedures and stent geometries and materials. Expand
Anisotropic mechanical properties of tissue components in human atherosclerotic plaques.
TLDR
Experimental data of individual samples indicated anisotropic and highly nonlinear tissue properties as well as considerable interspecimen differences in the atherosclerotic lesions. Expand
Behavior of atherosclerotic plaque components after in vitro angioplasty and atherectomy studied by high field MR imaging.
TLDR
In vitro models developed to image the response of fatty, fibrous, and calcified plaques to in vitro models of angioplasty and atherectomy show the high resistance of collagenous caps to radial compression and the rupture of calcified arteries at the plaque shoulder. Expand
Determination of layer-specific mechanical properties of human coronary arteries with nonatherosclerotic intimal thickening and related constitutive modeling.
TLDR
The study showed the need to model nonstenotic human coronary arteries with nonatherosclerotic intimal thickening as a composite structure composed of three solid mechanically relevant layers with different mechanical properties. Expand
