Ruptured aortic aneurysm is one of the commonest cause of mortality in developed countries. To avoid it interventional repair is an effective treatment. In the recent years the development of new therapies, such as stent implantations, allows to perform this treatment more and more safely establishing it as good alternatives to traditional surgeries. The goal of our study is to investigate the physics and the patient recovery after Cardiatis MFM stents implantation. Modelling of the blood flow through the human aorta with implanted MFM stent and its corresponding stress are performed using COMSOL Multiphysics®. While patient specific geometries are reconstructed from imaging data (CT-scan) are used as onset with imposed realistic boundary condition.
