Design Optimization of Coronary Stent Based on Finite Element Models

Figure 2

FEM models. (a) LRD model: loaded by a radial displacement to expand the diameters of stent from 2.54 mm to 4.54 mm. (b) LPV model: loaded by a pressure to expand the diameters of stent from 2.54 mm to 4.54 mm. (c) LPC model: loaded by a constant pressure. (d) SMPV model: without artery and plaque, loaded by a pressure to expand the diameters of stent from 2.54 mm to 4.54 mm.
