Biodegradable magnesium alloy stents (MAS) could present improved long-term clinical performances over commercial bare metal or drug-eluting stents. However, MAS were found to show limited mechanical support for diseased vessels due to fast degradation. Optimizing stent design through finite element analysis (FEA) is an efficient way to improve such properties. Following previous FEA works on design optimization and degradation modeling of MAS, this work carried out an experimental validation… CONTINUE READING
