In this study, the authors present an analysis of a potentially overlooked clinical scenario, namely overlapped stents separated with a layer of insulation. Electromagnetic and thermal simulations as well as measurements were performed to test such configurations. The results show that implanted medical devices that include gapped conductive structures, like overlapped stents, can affect the location and magnitude of peak heating near the implant.
