The introduction of Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffolds (BVS) has revolutionized the treatment of atherosclerosis. InSilc is an in silico clinical trial (ISCT) platform in a Cloud-based environment used for the design, development and evaluation of BVS. Advanced multi-disciplinary and multiscale models are integrated in the platform towards predicting the short/acute and medium/long term scaffold performance. In this study, InSilc platform is employed in a use case scenario and demonstrates how the whole in silico pipeline allows the interpretation of the effect of the arterial anatomy configuration on stent implantation.
