Fast virtual deployment of self-expandable stents: Method and in vitro evaluation for intracranial aneurysmal stenting
Introduction: Minimally invasive treatment approaches, like the implantation of percutaneous stents, are becoming more popular every day for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. The outcome of such treatments is related to factors like vessel and aneurysm geometry, hemodynamic conditions and device design. For this reason, having a tool for assessing stenting alternatives beforehand is crucial.
