A novel hyperelastic thin film NiTi covered neurovascular microstent was developed for treating wide-neck and fusiform neurovascular aneurysms. This device requires 300–500% recoverable elongation for both collapsing and deployment. Nonlinear buckling and static analysis of Finite Element Modeling (FEM: ANSYS software used) was applied for obtaining critical buckling stress and critical strain values depending on thickness, strut width and pore height. A maximum theoretical critical strain for one geometry as high as 316% while a different experimentally tested film was found to strain 600% elastically without any signs of permanent deformation.
