abstract

  • Intra-aneurysmal flow patterns and wall shear stress in an AcomA aneurysm calculated with computational flow dynamics depended strongly on the flow distribution between A1 segments. Patient-specific flow data measured with pcMRI obtained prior to computational flow dynamics are necessary for an accurate simulation of intra-aneurysmal flow patterns and calculation of wall shear stress in AcomA aneurysms. Further studies may indicate if wall shear stress calculated with computational flow dynamics can predict aneurysm growth and/or rupture.
