The aim of this study was to investigate the drug distribution in arteries treated with DES-BMS stenting strategy and to analyze the influence of proximal DES on distal segments of BMS. A straight artery model (Straight Model) and a branching artery model (Branching Model) were constructed in this study. In each model, the DES was implanted at the proximal(More)
The solute transport in vivo is an important biological behavior within the avascular extracellular matrix of articular cartilage. Mechanical condition drives the cartilage to obtain nutrition and exclude waste during daily activities. The investigation of the transport behavior within the tissue is important to the understanding of the mechanisms of(More)
We hypothesize that after implantation the much elevated water filtration rate of venous grafts may cause aggravated concentration polarization of low density lipoproteins (LDLs), in turn lead to the accelerated atherogenesis of the grafts. To verify the hypothesis, we numerically simulated the transport of LDLs in various models of arterial bypasses with(More)
Longitudinal anatomic mismatch (LAM) of stenting (i.e., a stenotic artery segment is not fully covered by a deployed stent) worsens the mechanical environment in the treated artery, which most likely is the cause for the associated high risks of restenosis, myocardial infarction and stent thrombosis. To probe the possibility, we constructed a(More)
