Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) Flow Measurements of Carotid Artery Bifurcation with Application to a Novel Covered Carotid Stent Design

Stenosed carotid artery is responsible for 60% of strokes in the United States and is the third major cause of death. Recently, there is an increasing interest in carotid artery stenting for treatment of cervical carotid artery bifurcation atherosclerotic disease. The ultimate goal of this study is to develop, prototype, test, and optimize a novel design of a covered carotid stent, in order to achieve emboli prevention and...
