Abstract

Despite the atheroprone environment of blood flow in coronary bifurcations, limited quantitative information is available on the hemodynamics occurring in these geometries, both before and after their treatment with endovascular stents. Previous studies have focused on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses and have bypassed the challenges associated with experimentally representing the flow environment, providing no means for validation. This study analyzed steady flow conditions in 3 bifurcation angles and 4 different single- and double-stenting procedures, which are used clinically in coronary bifurcations.
