cardiovascular implant durability conference

Inaugural Conference October 14-16, 2019

 

Join us on the beautiful Monterey Coast at the Asilomar Conference Center for a unique and defining three-day conference focused on understanding, predicting, and optimizing the durability of cardiovascular implants.

 

This event is intended to link anatomic and physiological conditions to implant design and to the engineering mechanics of fracture. Special highlights are panels discussions from the perspective of manufacturers, regulators, and physicians/inventors-turned-patients.

This conference is ideal for engineers and clinicians interested in cardiovascular implant design and durability. With renowned engineering and physician speakers from industry, academia, and the FDA, this conference will provide an up-to-date review of the field. Sponsored by medical device companies and with exhibits by preclinical, simulation, and testing service companies.

Day One: Boundary Conditions

The first day will introduce medical imaging and quantification tools used to determine vascular deformations, and to summarize current knowledge of important vascular beds including coronary, aortic, peripheral arterial, venous, and neurovascular. These boundary conditions, which are critical for design and durability prediction, differ dramatically depending on anatomy, pathology, and implantation of devices.

Day Two: Computational Analysis

The second day will focus on the translation of in vivo forces and displacements to the stresses and strains that ultimately determine implant durability. Finite Element Analysis will be emphasized with examples of how it can be used effectively and misused. We will also discuss future improvements in modeling techniques and verification and validation, with the end goal of using models to justify abbreviating costly clinical trials.

Day Three: Engineering Predictions

The final day will turn to engineering mechanics and how device lifetime can be predicted from analytical stress and strains. The role of material variation will be discussed, as well as the merits of strain-based, stress-based, and energy-based approaches to fatigue. Benchtop testing, both of finished devices and “test coupons”, will be discussed in regards to shortening testing and determining safety margins.


Panel Discussions

Uniquely, each day will close with a panel discussion addressing the impact of implant durability from the perspective of the manufacturers, regulators, and patients.
