The arterial vasculature employs an elastic arterial structure. Typically, the medial layer occupies a larger portion of the cross sectional area in muscular (distributing) arteries than in elastic (conducting) arteries. Conversely, the elastic medial layer tends to exhibit a lower circumferential modulus than the muscular medial layer.
Basic model construction employs our patented SynTissue brand synthetic human arterial intima, media, and adventitia layers. These materials are designed on the basis of physical tests performed on actual living tissue, and each synthetic tissue is validated (tensile modulus, penetration resistance, coefficient of dynamic friction, etc) under the same physical conditions as the live tissue it is designed to simulate. The resulting synthetic artery responds to puncture, abrasion, and balloon dilation just like a real living artery.
SynTissue synthetic human tissues made from salt, water and fiber – which feature the world’s most realistic tactility.
All of our products are made in the USA.
