Abstract: A coupled non-Fickian model of a cardiovascular drug delivery system using a biodegradable drug-eluting stent is proposed. The numerical results are obtained using an implicit-explicit finite-element method. The influence of vessel stiffness on the transport of drug eluted from the stent is analysed. The results presented in this paper suggest new perspectives to adapt the drug delivery profile to the needs of the patient.
