Application: Researchers Saving Lives with Improved Artery Stent Design
Posted Thu August 06, 2009 @10:23AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Researchers at Virginia Military Institute are working to improve artery stent effectiveness. Heart disease, often caused by partially blocked coronary arteries, is the most common cause of death in the world.

According to the American Heart Association, about one in four stent patients will experience restenosis, a repeated narrowing of the stented artery, less than six months after the procedure. The VMI team is combining simulation with animation software from Computational Engineering International (CEI) to help identify a possible cause for restenosis and to find solutions that might help reduce the risk of developing it.
