Paper Title:
Effects of Material on the Deployment of Coronary Stents
  Abstract

Coronary stents have been more and more widely used in clinic over the past decade. There have been a large number of stents made of different biocompatible materials available commercially in the market. It is however unclear which is more suitable to specific patients. This raises a major concern whether the choice of stents could be assessed before a delivery surgery. This paper aims to provide a computational approach for evaluating the effect of stent materials on biomechanical outcomes of the deployments of stents in different patient. It will review the typical biomaterials being used for coronary stents, seeking to qualitatively assess them for use as coronary stents. Non-linear explicit finite element (FE) procedure is carried out using the Palmaz-Schatz stent geometry to quantitatively predict the effect of mechanical properties of these biomaterials on stent and coronary artery behavior during stent deployment. A quantitative comparison is made for exploring the effect of different materials on the deployment of stents. The study is considered significant in understanding the role how stent materials affect biomechanical responses to the coronary stenting. It provides a new methodology to promote a patient-specific assessment before surgery.
