Heart Simulations Used To Improve Stent Implantations

In response to a patient’s unique problems with a failure of a previous stent implant, researchers at University College London Institute of Cardiovascular Science used Dassault Systemes’ SIMULIA Abaqus, in combination with patient image data, to create personalized, virtual models of the patient’s anatomy. The implantation of different sized stents was simulated to compare their effects on blood flow, pressure, and aneurysm coverage. Download the case study for the full story.
