We were recently invited to be a keynote speaker for Medical Device Standards: Technical Training on Cardiovascular Materials and Device Aspects at the PERU Workshop on Medical Device Regulation: Policy and Technical Aspects, November 2-4, 2015. The event was hosted by ASTM International Standards Alliance with USAID/ANSI. The primary audience was government regulators, national medical device technical […]

Today I presented preliminary results of our inter-laboratory fatigue study at the FDA/NHLBI/NSF Workshop. Dimensional variances were characterized for the gStent-BE and found typical of stainless steel stents. Good agreement was found between three labs for characterizing the stress-strain behavior. Preliminary data from the labs are in good agreement with a 50% survival of the […]
I was given the opportunity to discuss the State-of-the-Art Computational Modeling for Cardiovascular Devices at the FDA/NHLBI/NSF Workshop at the FDA White Oaks campus in Silver Spring, MD. A number of colleagues contributed examples of their work in the field so I was well prepared and excited to share what’s on the cutting edge. Hengchu […]
I just returned from a workshop sponsored by the FDA (and the NHLBI and NSF) on Computer Methods for Cardiovascular Devices. It was an excellent workshop providing an audience of regulatory, academic and industrial interests a chance to get caught up on the state-of-the-art, trends and, in general, to exchange ideas on the issues of […]
With the growing use of Nitinol in medical implants, there is a need for improved characterization of the material behavior of Nitinol and methodologies for better product design and engineering. While it is a good starting point, the typical approach of employing the force-deformation response from uniaxial tension tests for input and validation of material […]
Follow this link to the ASTM website and find the long awaited for “Standard Guide for Finite Element Analysis of Metallic Vascular Stents Subjected to Uniform Radial Loading”. This guide establishes general requirements and considerations for using finite element analysis techniques for the numerical simulation of metallic stents subjected to uniform radial loading. These stents […]
You can download my presentation at the 2007 Cleveland Clinic Stent Summit on carotid artery stent fractures from an engineers perspective which discusses combined loading conditions, fatigue, material limits and other factors.
The Biological Systems and Materials Division has been focusing on embracing and serving the duality of its membership, which consists of many established members of the society and the field of theoretical and applied mechanics who are developing research programs focusing on biological systems and materials, and simultaneously numerous researchers from the biological sciences who […]
You can download the brochure for this special symposium that brings together state-of-the-art developments in clinical imaging techniques, computer modeling, medical device testing and materials characterization with a focus on medical implants, their design and the Experimental Mechanics underlying device interaction with the human body.
