Biomechanical properties of human subclavian and iliac arteries subjected to extension, inflation and torsion

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk at conference or symposiumScience to science


Peripheral vascular trauma due to injuries of limbs are life-threatening, and their treatment requires rapid diagnosis and highly-qualified surgical procedures [1]. Experienced surgeons have recognized that subclavian arteries, affected due to injuries of the upper limbs, are more sensitive to these procedures than common iliac arteries, which are affected due to injures of the lower limbs. We investigated
these two artery types to determine whether the higher sensitivity of the subclavian arteries can also be identified in biomechanical experiments.
