This study describes a method for the reconstruction patient-specific stented coronary artery models from medical images routinely acquired during percutaneous coronary intervention. The resultant high fidelity geometries allow evaluating local hemodynamic alterations within coronary arteries after the stent deployment. The method was developed and validated on a phantom resembling a typical human coronary artery. Subsequently, it was applied to an in vivo OCT dataset to demonstrate its applicability to patient-specific cases.
