To investigate the hemodynamic performance of overlapping bare-metal stents intervention treatment to thoracic aortic aneurysms (TAA), three simplified TAA models, representing, no stent, with a single stent and 2 overlapped stents deployed in the aneurismal sac, were studied and compared in terms of flow velocity, wall shear stress (WSS) and pressure distributions by means of computational fluid dynamics. The results showed that overlapping stents intervention induced a flow field of slow… CONTINUE READING
