The Effect of Torsion of Blood Vessel after Stent Implantation on Mechanical State of Stent

In daily life, the movement of the neck will cause certain deformation of the blood vessel and the stent. This study explores the quantitative influence of the torsion deformation of the blood vessel on the mechanical properties of the stent. In the finite element simulation software Abaqus, the numerical simulation of the crimping and releasing process of the stent, the numerical simulation of the torsion process of the blood vessel with the stent, and the numerical simulation of the pressure loading process of the outer wall of the blood vessel were carried out. After the stent was implanted, when a load was applied to the outer surface of the blood vessel wall, when the applied load did not change, as the torsion angle increased, the smallest cross-sectional area in the blood vessel decreased. After the stent is placed, when the external load is fixed, the radial support capacity of the stent will decrease as the torsion angle increases.
