Abstract

The evaluation of mechanical properties of aortic vascular prostheses was presented. A comparison among in vitro, theoretical and clinical data was done. The results showed that mean value and standard deviation of dilatation for the experimental measurements were 0.208±0.045 mm, while those of in vivo measurements were 0.209±0.046 mm.
