Abstract

The wall properties of coronary arteries are important to the success of vascular interventions. They are also important in the attempts to construct numerical models of the coronary tree as a tool for the inteventionalists to plan the procedures. In the current study we measured and calculated the inelastic mechanical properties of coronary vessels and laid the ground for a working numerical model.
