A group of researchers from A*STAR's Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) engineered an innovative stent-graft design that incorporated several new features, allowing better conformability between
stent-graft and aortic wall at various curvatures and preserving all supra-aortic branches and stable, accurate deployment. The team then performed computer simulations, bench studies, and pilot animal testing to evaluate and optimise the performance
of new stent-graft designs.
