Living Heart Human Model: Cardiovascular Stent Deployment And Cardiac Cycle Tech Brief

Source: Dassault Systemes Americas

The SIMULIA Living Heart Human Model provides a unique testing environment where a stent can be deployed virtually in coronary arteries and deformed mechanically during the cardiac cycle. Once the mechanical deformation results are obtained, the long-term durability of the stent can be assessed. The virtual nature of the test provides a physiologically accurate methodology to test new and existing devices without exposing patients to unnecessary risk.
