Contemporary endovascular stents are the product of an iterative design and development process that leverages evolving concepts in vascular biology and engineering. This article reviews how insights into vascular pathophysiology, materials science, and design mechanics drive stent design and explain modes of stent failure. Current knowledge of pathologic… CONTINUE READING
