In-stent restenosis, the maladaptive response of a blood vessel to injury caused by the deployment of a stent, is a multiscale problem involving a large number of processes. We describe a Complex Automata Model for in-stent restenosis, coupling a bulk flow, drug diffusion, and smooth muscle cell model, all operating on different time scales. Details of the single scale models and of the coupling interfaces are described, together with first simulation results, obtained with a dedicated software environment for Complex Automata simulations. The results show that the model can reproduce growth trends observed in experimental studies.
