The present study focuses on developing basal to near hyperemic flow through the entrance region of a deployed stent in a coronary artery segment. Stents that are presently available in market differ significantly in design. Hence, there is a need to optimize its design such that the magnitude of wall shear stress is within physiologic limit, thus minimizing the patho-physiological effects. For near hyperemic flow, the analysis showed a 20 fold increase in the positive values of wall shear stress at the stent wires exposed to the blood flow. Further, at the void next to the entrance, the wall shear stress was an order of magnitude lower than the values typically observed in similar downstream regions.
