Abstract

A patient that suffers from an aortic dissection often have stent grafts placed over the affected area. The stent graft reduces the native compliance of the aorta raising mean the arterial pressure and causing increased stress on the vasculature. The increased stress could lead to further complications such as dissection or rupture. This project aims to reintroduce the compliance in the aorta by adding a compressible gas layer to a double-walled stent graft.
