Paper Title:
Stent Retention Measurement
  Abstract

This article introduces two original measurement methods (i.e. adhesive layer and pulloff edge) for the determination of the stent retention force, together with the results from these measurements. The measurement with the adhesive layer models and quantifies the stentobstruction occurring in the constrictions; meanwhile the pull-off edge method is based on modelling and quantifying the collisions and constrictions in the main catheter. For the evaluation of the measurements our research introduced the specific ‘stent pull-off’ force, which shows the force required for the ‘pull-off’ of the stent from the balloon, which is referred to as the stent unit length. This is the maximum force value shown on the retention diagram (insert diagram reference here). It is ascertainable, that the presence of the polyurethane coating and the increase of the pulling-speed are increasing the ‘stent pull-off’ force. During the test interval of the pull-off speed, the ‘stent pull-off’ force for the Chronoflex®-coated stents increased from 0.45 N/mm to 0.76 N/mm.
