The effect of a metallic coronary stent within the applied electric field was modelled in this study. Electrical field distortions and thermal effects were assessed. The presence of a stent causes minor electric field disruption, leading to increased field concentrations at the stent and a resulting localized temperature increase. This increase was insignificant and not at a level that would cause tissue damage or necrosis.
