Characterization of Atrial Septal Defect Occluders by right and left atrial pull-out forces

  • Occluders made of the shape memory alloy Nitinol are commonly used to close Atrial Septal Defects (ASD). Until now, standard parameters are missing defining the mechanical properties of these implants. In this study,we developed a special measuring setup for the determination of the mechanical properties of customly available occluders (i.e. Occlutech Figulla®Flex II 29ASD12 andOccluders made of the shape memory alloy Nitinol are commonly used to close Atrial Septal Defects (ASD).
