This paper deals with fatigue life prediction of 316L stainless steel cardiac stents. Stents are biomedical devices used to reopen narrowed vessels. Fatigue life is dominated by the cyclic loading due to the systolic and diastolic pressure and the design against premature mechanical failure is of extreme importance. Here, a life assessment approach based on the Dang Van high cycle fatigue criterion and on finite element analysis is applied to explore the fatigue reliability of 316L stents subjected to multiaxial fatigue loading. A finite element analysis of the stent vessel subjected to cyclic pressure is performed to carry out fluctuating stresses and strain at some critical elements of the stent where cracks or complete fracture may occur. The obtained results show that the loading path of the analysed stent subjected to a pulsatile load pressure is located in the safe region concerning infinite lifetime.
