Vital Signs Chicago – Cardiovascular Disease
In this lesson, our young doctors modelled two different arterial pathways to introduce the complexity of angioplasty – the surgical repair or unblocking of a blood vessel. They not only built the models, but they also engineered model stents to clear a blocked artery.
By the end of the day, they each developed different applications of their models and were even able to explain how their products could be used to treat cardiovascular disease. Who knows? We could see one of these designs in the very near future!
