Catheter design and optimization via CFD simulation and design exploration

Webinaire à la demande | 40 minutes

How to design catheters best suited for specific objectives

Catheters are among the most commonly used medical devices, employed in a wide range of procedures including the administration of intravenous fluids, drug delivery, and dialysis. In order to maximize the effectiveness of a catheter for a particular application, medical device developers are increasingly turning to simulation to design catheters best suited for achieving specific objectives. In the case of a drug delivery catheter, for instance, the goal is more efficient and uniform drug delivery, while ensuring that the catheter design does not negatively impact the flow properties that affect thrombus generation and recirculation.

Simulation also provides a way to investigate the response of a design to different sources of variability—variability of usage, of patients, or of the design itself.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how the sophisticated Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation and design exploration tools in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ can help you meet the ever-present challenges of accelerated design cycles and risk management.

Specifically, you’ll learn about:

  • The roles that multi-physics simulation and design exploration play in finding the highest-performing catheter design
  • How simulation can be used to assess the impact of variability on designs
  • The importance of incorporating simulation early in the design process, as part of the broader approach of Digital Evidence Generation, as a way to cut time and cost from the approval process
