Computational fluid dynamics modeling confirms better blood flow with new stent graft design

Vascular surgeon Pat Kelly of Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, knew his patients were doing better with the stent graft he designed, but he wanted a better understanding of the mechanics before testing the device more widely in a clinical trial. For that, he reached out to South Dakota State University.

Associate professor Stephen Gent in mechanical engineering had done computational fluid dynamics modeling for more than 10 years, but this was his first experience simulating blood flow.

Their research partnership has been a successful one.
