Moore, J. E. (n.d.). Biomechanical Issues in Endovascular Device Design.
This study focused on the development of long term based treatments as a
result of biomechanical developments in stent research. Biomechanical
modeling has long focused on short term objectives such as deployment and
immediate treatment, with a focus now shifting towards the treatment of
late stage thrombosis and other DES derived ailments. Incorporating drug
delivery systems with new, slimmed geometric stent designs, biomechanical
advancement is needed in order to treat new and never before seen
problems associated with cardiovascular therapeutics.
