Vessel scaffolding is usually measured as the cell area of the stent in free-expanded configuration, neglecting thus the actual stent configuration within the vascular anatomy. In this study, we measure the cell area of four different stent designs deployed in a realistic carotid artery model through patient-specific finite element analysis. The results suggest that after deployment, the cell area change along the stent length and the related reduction with respect to the free-expanded configuration are functions of the vessel tapering.
