Abstract

Medical device designers must develop catheters that avoid harming the vascular pathway during therapy delivery. To better characterize the necessary design features to minimize damage to central and peripheral vessels, the vascular pathway used for femoral delivery of a cardiac device is studied through high resolution, computed tomography images of fresh, human cadavers. Comparisons of the amount and location of vessel calcification are made between specified anatomical sections. Though the potential complications may be less fatal, the descending aorta and iliac regions were found to be most susceptible to embolism in our analysis.
