Pulsatile Flow Leads to Intimal Flap Motion and Flow Reversal in an In Vitro Model of Type B Aortic Dissection.

Abstract

Understanding of the hemodynamics of Type B aortic dissection may improve outcomes by informing upon patient selection, device design, and deployment strategies. This project characterized changes to aortic hemodynamics as the result of dissection. We hypothesized that dissection would lead to elevated flow reversal and disrupted pulsatile flow patterns in… (More)
