Stents have dramatically improved the treatment of coronary artery disease. Since the implantation of stents changes the geometry and dynamics of the coronary artery, it is reasonable to hypothesize that some of these changes may have an important effect on the development of atherosclerosis by modulating the mechanical environment. In this paper, we presented a method to compare the geometric dynamics of the coronary artery before and after stenting using biplane angiography. Two cases are reviewed and a number of parameters are proposed to describe the longitudinal change of the vessel before and after stenting. This analysis technique has the potential to identify some aspects of stent design and procedure that might improve the success rate with this therapeutic approach.
