Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) represents an asymptomatic cardiovascular type of disease, that is diagnosed in elder people over 60 years old. It is characterised by a ballooning of the abdominal aorta, which grows, at different rates in different patients. If left untreated, it will rupture causing severe internal bleeding, which can lead to shock or death . Medical devices such as bifurcated stent grafts (SG) are used for the treatment of this disease. To help improve SG performance, biomedical engineers design benchtop models for testing.
