In-stent restenosis (ISR) is a frequent complication after stent implantation. Recently, a passive sensor system for integration into a stent has been presented, which is designed to detect an ISR early by measuring the local pulse wave velocity (PWY). This system is based on two pressure sensitive transponders, the resonance frequency of which hits the frequency of a magnetic field generated by an externally applied transceiver coil during a pulse cycle. This method is limited in applicability by the largest PWY it can measure. In this contribution a modified sensor system is investigated, which operates at two separate frequencies for each transponder. It has been shown that this modification solves the problem of limited PWY measurement range. Additionally, the previously developed model was shown to be valid for bifrequent operation. Furthermore, the influence of the system parameters on measurement precision have been investigated and verified in simulations.
