Abstract

Coarctation of the aorta is a narrowing of the aorta that is present at birth. Treatments for coarctation of the aorta affect the aorta wall stiffness. This study uses a 1D model to predict the effects of altered wall stiffness. Stent treatments increase both blood pressure and the radial change of the aorta wall over a heartbeat cycle, compared to both healthy aortas and the resection and end-to-end anastomosis treatment.
