Luminal Flow Amplifies Stent-Based Drug Deposition in Arterial Bifurcations

Figure 1

Schematics of the computational models used for the study. A stent of length LS is placed at the upstream section of the arterial vessel in the (A) absence and in the (B) presence of a bifurcation, respectively. Insets in (B) denote delta wing stent design (i), strut thickness (δ) (ii), and the outlets of the side-branch and the main-branch in (iii) and (iv), respectively.
