Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) is a localized permanent dilatation occurring in abdominal region of the aorta. Nearly 8% of the population above 65 years old is diagnosed with this disease , which has been shown to be associated with smoking history, heredity, and male gender. As it is asymptomatic, vascular surgeons may opt for surgical intervention or follow a wait-and-watch strategy if their assessment of the risk of rupture is low. During surgical intervention grafts are placed inside the aorta. Design of such intravascular devices as well as monitoring the progression of the disease by means of scientific approach may benefit from information on the strains that occur in the aneurysmatic region at different instances due to cyclic internal pressurization during cardiac cycle.
