Endovascular stents are used to treat aneurysms, dissections and acute traumatic disruptions of the thoracic aorta. While stents are certainly a much less invasive treatment option, the behaviour of stents in the aorta is still not well understood. Six Gianturco stents were tested and found to exhibit nonlinear force-displacement relationships.
