Simulation of drug release (what for)?

Author: Gabriele Dubini Professor of Biomechanics at Politecnico di Milano



Assessment of the effectiveness of different DES stenting techniques in supplying drug to the arterial wall.


  • Implementation of a drug-eluting stent model based on realistic structural simulations.
  • Importance of a DES deployment in the side branch to adequately supply drug.
  • Reduction of drug uptake due to stent overlapping and incomplete stent apposition.
