Abstract: A stent in the body of a cardiovascular patient, though may not have any harmful effect whatsoever, but it does effect the conductivity levels of an artery. The properties of a stented artery differ from a normal artery, since a stent is usually a typical stainless steel mesh. This paper investigated a non-invasive technique for the study of change in electrical field through the normal as well as stented artery using electrical impedance plethysmography.
