The deployment of a vascular stent aims to increase lumen diameter for the restoration of blood flow, but the accompanied alterations in the mechanical environment possibly affect the long-term patency of these devices. The primary aim of this investigation was to develop an algorithm to optimize stent design, allowing for consideration of competing solid(More)
OBJECTIVES Effects of hypertension on arteries and arterioles often manifest first as a thickened wall, with associated changes in passive material properties (e.g., stiffness) or function (e.g., cellular phenotype, synthesis and removal rates, and vasomotor responsiveness). Less is known, however, regarding the relative evolution of such changes in vessels(More)
