Computational modelling of vascular interventions: endovascular device deployment

Abstract:

Minimally invasive vascular interventions with stent deployment have become a popular alternative to conventional open surgery in the treatment of many vascular disorders. However, the high initial success rates of endovascular repairs have been overshadowed by reported complications that cause re-interventions and, in the worst case, morbidity and mortality. The dangerous complications could be mitigated by better choice of device design and by the appropriate positioning of the implant i...
