This study aimed to characterize the deformations and changes that occur
in arterial vasculature as a result of changes in patient position.
Applying novel geometric modeling devices and algorithms to identify
changes in arterial vasculature, clinical trials were then completed to
identify how certain deformations affect stent efficiency and structural
integrity. Applying 3-D modeling systems to the data collected, this
study concluded that further must be done to determine the affects of
vascular change on stent action within a target vessel.
