Abstract

Application of double-barreled cannon stent grafts aortic repair (DoBAR) was reported in 2011 for extremely large aortic aneurysms of patients when there was no proper size of grafts for the emergent treatment. Fixation characteristics of the double stent grafts are obtained in a laboratory setting, and are incorporated with those of single Zenith TX2 grafts of sizes from 34 to 42mm. Radial stress and shear increase linearly with the oversizing parameter but decrease with increasing stent diameter. The slope of the linear relationship is practically the same for this group of grafts. When the original circular stent grafts of diameter 36 and 38mm are deformed to form DoBAR of diameter 44 or 46.4mm, the formation could provide higher radial stress and shear to secure fixation for endo-aortic repair. The experimental results of single and DoBAR grafts can be incorporated for clinical application of DoBAR for emergent treatment.
