In this paper we formulate and analyze the mixed formulation of the one-dimensional equilibrium model of elastic stents. The model is based on the curved rod model for the inextensible and ushearable struts and is formulated in the weak form in \v{C}ani\'{c} and Tamba\v{c}a, 2012... It is given by a system of ordinary differential equations at the graph structure. In order to numerically treat the model using finite element method the mixed formulation is plead for. We obtain equivalence of the weak and the mixed formulation by proving the Babuska--Brezzi condition for the stent structure. read more
