The risk of cardiovascular disorders, including aortic aneurysms and aortic dissection increases with age. So far, there has been no effective method of diagnosing and predicting the risk of dissection of the aorta. The aim of the study was to examine the potential role of the finite elements method to predict the risk of aortic dissection and the impact of the geometry of the aorta, aortic root motion and blood pressure on the wall stress in the aortic wall.
