MIT engineers have been working on a mathematical model that can be used to map out the patterns of turbulence formed by drug eluting stents. With this knowledge it is possible to predict which designs will be less favorable to the formation of stent induced clots, and so let engineers work around potentially bad shapes (via Model Helps Develop Better Cardiac Stent Designs – Medgadget )
