BIOMECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF HUMAN DILATED ASCENDING AORTA DEPENDING ON AORTIC VALVE TYPE

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

Aneurysms of ascending aorta are dilatation of the first part of the human aorta. Commonly showing no clinical symptoms, but increases the risk of aorta dissection, which is a life-threatening condition [1, 2]. Normally humans have tricuspid aortic valve (TAV), but one of the most frequent congenital malformation is bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). In this study we try to elucidate the changes in the biomechanical properties, which occur in the dilated human ascending aorta depending on aortic valve type.
