Implantable Sensor System for Remote Detection of a Restenosis Condition

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 sensor is 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.
