Dynamic human cadaver model for testing the feasibility of new endovascular techniques and tools

Ann Vasc Surg. 2010 Apr;24(3):419-22. doi: 10.1016/j.avsg.2009.04.001. Epub 2009 Jul 19.


Endovascular device specifications and technical improvements are strongly required, especially in particular anatomical locations such as the aortic arch and the thoracoabdominal aorta. We present a new technique for total endovascular repair of the aortic arch and an experimental design of a circulation model in the human cadaver in order to evaluate the feasibility of this technique.
