Biomechanics of Optimum Stent Implantation Strategy Considering Vessel Wall Contact and Vessel Trauma.

Abstract

An optimum stent implantation strategy is assumed to depend on stent diameter and implantation pressure. However, which consequences are expected in case of mismatch? The presented study investigated stent implantation in native porcine arteries and measured acute lumen gain, vessel injury and wall contact area between stent struts and surrounding vessel… (More)
