NiTi (nickel-titanium) stents are nowadays commonly used for the percutaneous treatment of peripheral arterial disease. However, their effectiveness is still debated in the clinical field. In fact a peculiar cyclic biomechanical environment is created before and after stent implantation, with the risk of device fatigue failure. An accurate study of the(More)
Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) peripheral stents are commonly used for the treatment of diseased femoropopliteal arteries (FPA). However, cyclic deformations of the vessel, induced by limb movements affect device performance and fatigue failure may occur. Stent strut fracture has been described in the literature, and is implicated as a potential causative factor in(More)

— The aim of this work is to introduce a methodology to study the stent expansion and the subsequent deformation of the arterial wall towards the outside direction in order arterial lesion to be rehabilitated and blood flow to be restored. More specifically, a coronary artery and the plaque are reconstructed using intravascular ultrasound and biplane(More)
