Acute aortic dissection and associated aortic catastrophes are among the most devastating forms of cardiovascular disease, with a remarkably high morbidity and mortality despite current medical and surgical treatment. The mechanics underlying aortic dissection are incompletely understood, and a further understanding of the relevant fluid and solid mechanics may yield not only a better appreciation of its pathogenesis, but also the development of improved diagnostic and therapeutic strategies… CONTINUE READING
