Aim and Scope

The International Conference on Stents is organised by Technical Committee 14 "Integrity of Biomedical and Biological Materials" of the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS).

The aim of this Conference is to bring together specialists in biomedical engineering, biomechanics, materials science, experimental mechanics, modelling and various aspects of processing and manufacturing as well as medical practitioners to discuss advances in stent technologies.

The topics of the Conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Metallic and polymeric materials for stents;
  • Mechanical properties of stents;
  • Development of biodegradable stents;
  • Modelling and simulations of stent deformation;
  • Stent design;
  • Stent manufacturing;
  • Stent failure and fracture;
  • In-vitro and in-vivo studies;
  • Biocompatibility of stents;
  • Stent-vessel interaction;
  • Fluid-solid interaction;
  • In-stent restenosis;
  • Biological and clinical issues related to stents;
  • Stent deployment and delivery;
  • Medical-imaging-based assessment.
  • Stent
