Models for hydrodynamic tests, example of hypoplastic aortic arch. Extruding a model of hypoplastic aorta with wall thickness appropriate for implementing patient-specific distensibility as derived from CMR data (A) and the finished model (B), including tapered connections for insertion in a mock circulatory system for hydrodynamic tests, and side ports for pressure measurements at different locations (the latter indicated by the red arrows).
