     View Summary

    © 2018 Chandrakantha Bekal et. al. Numerical analysis of complex physical environment continues to be preferred over "build and test" approach in product development process. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of coronary artery stenting is studied and researched worldwide for many years. Potential of using FEA for mimicking in-vivo is high as experimental test is ruled out for variety of reasons. This review aims at discussing issues and challenges of numerical simulation based on part of available literature on usage of FEA techniques for investigating behavior of balloon expandable (BE) coronary stents inside artery. Literatures of past 16 years of study on the structural analysis is summarized and potential issues for research is discussed. Study tries to investigate deployment characteristics and biomechanical response of artery post stenting and significance of non-physiological conditions induced. Effects of geometrical parameters, simulation strategies are summarized. Study mainly underscores the potential challenges of reliable numerical investigation. Scope of FEA in predicting contributor for in-stent reste-nosis (ISR), a major drawback of stenting procedure, by correlating the engineering aspect of stent design and its clinical significance supported by clinical trials are highlighted. Study is expected to serve as qualitative assessment for cardiologists to minimize procedural failure and quantitative tool for the designers for stent optimization.

  • Finite element analysis of a rupture-induced deformation of a carotid atherosclerotic plaque with intraplaque hemorrhage

      13 ( 1 ) 17-00436   2018.03  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    <p>Intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH), bleeding in a plaque, is caused by a neocapillary rupture in an atherosclerotic plaque. We used contrast-enhanced ultrasonography to diagnose carotid atherosclerotic plaques before carotid endarterectomy (CEA), a surgical operation to remove an arterial intimal layer including a plaque lesion. We found lumenward (inward) deformation in some cases of ruptured plaques with IPH. The aim of this study was to evaluate the mechanical effects of infiltrated blood in the lipid core on the luminal shape of the ruptured plaque in the short-axis view. We created a finite element model of a carotid artery bifurcation with a ruptured plaque based on a sample obtained from CEA. As physiological loads, we assigned pressures on the surfaces of the lumen and the lipid core, the sum of a gradual pressure drop in the artery obtained from computational fluid dynamics analysis and a uniform pressure, and a constant longitudinal stretch. In the simulation, the fibrous cap in the ruptured model became almost flat in the short-axis view with lumenward deformation, being less deformed than that observed in ultrasonography. The simulation results show that inward deformation of the fibrous cap is correlated with an equal pressure in the lumen and the lipid core. In comparison, a hyperelastic model of soft unruptured plaque reproduced a round lumen. A better understanding of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography images from a mechanical perspective may facilitate the morphological identification of plaque rupture with IPH.</p>
