Improvement of durability is one of the most important requirements for implantation devices. EN14299 required that fatigue testing should include in vitro testing of at least 400 million cycles (10 years equivalent). Failure of stent has several reasons which are long-term fatigue, impurity inclusions, damage during tube processing, slotting and polishing. Our research is aiming to determine that the mechanical polishing technology is more low roughness than the electrical polishing technology. Another mission we have is what we develop innovative laser cutting system for stent by using our original method at Translational Research center.
