Abstract(s)The mechanical behavior of stentsis one of the important factors involved in ensuring their function in maintaining an open blood vessel. This study aims to study the development of different kinds of fiber-based stents, using braiding technology. Moreover, the impact of braiding angle and mandrel’s diameter in the mechanical behavior of the stent is also analyzed. Furthermore, stent’s mechanical properties like radial and longitudinal compression, bending and porosity will be measured and discuss. The results show that fibrous stents present suitable mechanical properties, when compared to those of commercial ones, and may reduce the disadvantages of commercial metallic stents.
