Impact of transmural heterogeneities on arterial adaptation: application to aneurysm formation.

Abstract:

Recent experimental and computational studies have shown that transmurally heterogeneous material properties through the arterial wall are critical to understanding the heterogeneous expressions of constituent degrading molecules. Given that expression of such molecules is thought to be intimately linked to local magnitudes of stress, modelling the transmural stress distribution is critical to understanding arterial adaption during disease. The aim of this study was to develop an arterial gro...
