Figure 2

Anatomical inspection of the convective pressure, showing velocity streamlines coloured by pressure, in a healthy volunteer (HV2), a patient with Marfan syndrome (MFS), a patient with an aortic dissection (AoD), and a patient with bicuspid aortic valve, ascending aortic dilation, and a pseudo-coarctation (BAV). MFS and BAV both show vortexes characterised by an abrupt drop of pressure, at the beginning of the proximal descending aorta. AoD shows increased pressure in the aortic root graft, the (dissected) carotid artery, and in the proximal descending aorta at the outer curvature.
