Modeling stent deployment in realistic arterial segment geometries: The effect of the plaque composition

Abstract

Stents are medical devices used in cardiovascular intervention for unblocking the diseased arteries and restoring blood flow. During stent implantation the deformation of the arterial wall as well as the resulted stresses caused in the arterial morphology are studied. In this paper we study the effect of the composition of the atherosclerotic plaque during… (More)
