This special session will cover a range of specific topics directly related to the EPSRC project: "Smart Peripheral Stents for the Lower Extremity - Design, Manufacturing and Evaluation"

Its topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Lesion-specific design;
  • Additive manufacturing;
  • Biomechanical testing;
  • Modelling of self-expansion;
  • Biocompatibility study;
  • In-vitro haemodynamics;
  • In-vivo evaluation;
  • Modelling of deployment;
  • Deformations due to severe twisting and bending.
  • Stent
