Heavily calcific lesions, total occlusions, tortuous blood vessels, variable lengths of arteries, various dynamic loads and deformations in the femoropopliteal (FP) arterial segment make stenosis treatments are complicated. The dynamic forces in FP artery including bending, torsion and radial compression may lead to stent fracture (SF) and eventually to in-stent restenosis (ISR). Stent design specifically geometrical configurations are a major factor need to be improved to optimize stent expansion and flexibility both bending and torsion during stent deployment into the diseased FP artery. Previous studies discovered the influence of various stent geometrical designs resulted different structural behaviour. Optimizing stent design can improve stent performances: flexibility and radial strength to prevent SF in FP arterial segment.
