Luminal Flow Amplifies Stent-Based Drug Deposition in Arterial Bifurcations

Figure 2

Increased mural drug deposition along the flow direction in a non-bifurcating arterial vessel. Inset shows a high magnification image of drug pattern in the distal stent segment outlined by black dashed line. The entire stent is divided into three equal sections denoted as proximal, middle and distal sections, respectively and the same notation is followed for subsequent analyses.
