Stent performance evaluation: a) initial shape showing the artery (green), plaque (red), stent (grey), and balloon (white); b) balloon expansion of the stent; c) von-Mises stress contours on the plaque and the artery post expansion; and d) blood flow streamlines in side a stented artery and drug contours in the tissue region.
