Patient-specific computational fluid dynamics analysis of transcatheter aortic root replacement with chimney coronary grafts
Transcatheter aortic root repair (TARR) consists of the simultaneous endovascular replacement of the aortic valve, the root and the proximal ascending aorta.
The aim of the study is to set-up a computational model of TARR to explore the impact of the endovascular procedure on the coronary circulation supported by chimney grafts.
They reported that it suggests that the TARR technique maintains coronary perfusion through the chimney grafts.
