Evaluation of a modified Cheatham-Platinum stent for the treatment of aortic coarctation by finite element modelling

Abstract

Objectives Stent implantation for the treatment of aortic coarctation has become a standard approach for the management of older children and adults. Criteria for optimal stent design and construction remain undefined. This study used computational modelling to compare the performance of two generations of the Cheatham-Platinum stent (NuMED, Hopkinton, NY… (More)
