|Abstract:||The increase of life expectancy in the European Union, and the high|
risk of cardiovascular diseases associated with age, are some of the main factors to contribute to the rise of healthcare costs. An intelligent stent (e-stent), capable of obtaining and transmitting real-time measurements of physiological parameters for its clinical consultation, can be a useful tool for long-term monitoring, diagnostic, and early warning system for arterial blockage without patient hospitalization. In this paper, a behavioural model of capacitive Micro-Electro-Mechanical (MEMS) pressure sensoris proposed and simulated under several restenosis conditions. Special attention has been given to the need of an accurate fault model, obtained from realistic finite-element simulations,to ensure long-term reliability; particularly for those faults whose behavior cannot be easily described by an analytical model.
