In aortoiliac occlusive disease, atherosclerotic plaques can occlude the distal aortic bifurcation and proximal bilateral iliac artery and thus cause ischemia in the lower extremity. This is typically treated by restoring patency with balloon expandable stents. Stents are typically deployed in a “kissing stent” configuration into the bilateral iliac arteries and into the distal aortic bifurcation lumen to restore antegrade arterial flow. However, these stents typically become re-occluded by plaques. To understand the reasons for this and look for solutions, we simulated flow dynamics in the aortic bifurcation in the presence and absence of stents using computational fluid dynamics. Results demonstrated that the kissing stent configuration was associated with high levels of vorticity and flow constriction. These prothrombotic variables were alleviated in an alternative, aortoiliac fenestrated (AIFEN), tapered, and balloon-expandable stent design. Our findings suggest that stent design can be tailored to improve flow fields for aortoiliac stenting.
