2 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 2 INTRODUCTION

3 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 3 A vascular stent is a small metal tube, which is inserted into an artery at the site of a narrowing to act as an internal scaffolding or a support to the blood vessel. INTRODUCTION

4 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 4 IN-STENT RISTENOSIS Intimal thickening following a stent implantation with progressive lumen reduction HYPOTHESIS: non physiological stress state field responsible for restenosis. Three phases (Edelman e Rogers, 1998): + REMODELING 10/12 months + PROLIFERATION first 3 weeks INFLAMMATION during implantation MOTIVATION [Mehran R., 2002]

5 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 5 STATE OF THE ART Effect of wire spacing, wire diameter, vessel diameter and flow conditions [Moore et al.,2002] Stent design: number, thickness and width of the strut Deployment ratio Comparison of resting or maximal vasodilatation condition [LaDisa et al.,2003-2004-2005] Foreshortening Changes in vascular geometry after stent deployment Effect of vessel curvature [Seo et al., 2005] Non-Newtonian condition [Soulis et al.,2002; Seo et al.,2005; Bernard et al.,2004] QUANTITATIVELY OBSERVED PARAMETERS wall shear stress (WSS) distribution velocity vectors recirculation length velocity profiles QUANTITIES OF INTEREST

MPF- 2006 6 THE PROBLEM Expansion under displacement control until a diameter of 3 mm was reached The stent geometry was modelled as shell elements FROM SIMPLIFIED MODELS … TO PLAQUE MODEL Healthy arteryArtery with plaque Migliavacca et al., Proceedings of 2005 Summer Bioengineernig ASME Conference Cordis BX Velocity (Johnson & Johnson Interventional System, Warren, NJ, USA)

8 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 8 First step: creation of the fluid domain METHODS Point cloud of the deformed configuration Creation of the curves and surfaces Creation of each volume Substraction and creation of the final fluid domain 1 2 3 4

20 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 20 LIMITATIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS Rigid wall: valid in the stented region Newtonian fluid Straight vessel: neglecting the curvature of the coronary artery Post implant condition Single strut Symmetric and hyperelastic plaque

21 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 21 Rigid wall: valid in the stented region Newtonian fluid Straight vessel: neglecting the curvature of the coronary artery Post implant condition Single strut Symmetric and hyperelastic plaque WORKS IN PROGRESS Carreau model: [Seo et al., 2005]

22 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 22 Rigid wall: valid in the stented region Newtonian fluid Straight vessel: neglecting the curvature of the coronary artery Post implant condition Single strut Symmetric and hyperelastic plaque WORKS IN PROGRESS Influence of the stent length:

23 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 23 WORKS IN PROGRESS Influence of the strut thickness: comparison of different stent design with same thickness CORDISJOSTENT 0.15 mm SORINPALMAZ 0.1 mm

24 Balossino R. MPF- 2006 24 In each stent model the WSS distribution is similar: the maximum values are located over the stent strut the arterial wall portion delimited by the links and the stent strut showed an increasing WSS value from the zones near the stent to the centre WSS values change during the cardiac cycle, showing an oscillatory behaviour The comparison among the four stent models indicates that: Jostent shows the lowest WSS value during the whole cardiac cycle the best model in terms of minimal neointima thickening is the Cordis stent the maximum WSS on the stent and the arterial wall occurs in the Cordis stent at the systolic peak CFD techniques have the advantages of producing accurate information on local flow variables very close to the arterial wall CFD can thus provide a research tool by complementing experimental studies, especially where experimental measurements are difficult to perform and affected by uncertainties.
