As experts continue to debate the optimal surgery practice for coronary disease - percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary aortic bypass graft (CABG) - computational tools may provide a quantitative assessment of each option. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been used to assess the interplay between hemodynamics and stent struts; it is of particular interest in Bioresorbable Vascular Stents (BVS), since their thicker struts may result in impacted flow patterns and possible pathological consequences...
