PERFEKT: Impact of peripheral endovascular repair on femoral-popliteal artery kinematic: from clinical experience to in vivo biomechanical modeling (PERFEKT study)

  • Project Title: Impact of peripheral endovascular repair on femoral-popliteal artery kinematic: from clinical experience to in vivo biomechanical modeling (PERFEKT study)
  • Acronym: PERFEKT
  • Partners: Dr. B. Pane (Vascular and Endovascular Surgery Unit, Ospedale Policlinico San Martino) [PI], Dr. G. Salsano [Operative Unit Responsible] (UO2 - Radiology Unit, Ospedale Policlinico San Martino), Michele Conti (UO3 - Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture, University of Pavia) [Operative Unit Responsible]
  • UniPV funding: 43.100 Euros - Overall funding: 262.300 Euros (over 3 years)
  • Funding agency: Italian Ministry Of Health (MOH) – Ricerca finalizzata 2018 - (GR-2018-12368376)
  • Short description: To evaluate the performance of the popliteal stent. In particular, to assess the capability of the device to restore the lumen patency and to keep it during the knee flexion and the induced arterial deformation, thus avoiding localized kinks and relevant changes to the native vessel kinematics. Specific aim is to identify clinically the factors that can influence the FPA morphology variation during knee flexion
