An intracranial aneurysm is a bulge in the cerebral vasculature. The rupture of an aneurysm results in a brain bleed. As a consequence, most patients become severely handicapped or may even die. Preventive treatment with endovascular coiling is controversial due to the high risk of complications. These complications are partly caused by the...

Introduction: Wall shear stress (WSS) is associated with the growth and rupture of an intracranial aneurysm. To reveal their underlying connections, many image-based computational fluid dynamics (CFD) studies have been conducted. However, the methodological validations using both in vivo medical imaging and in vitro optical flow measurements...

Brain aneurysms cause almost 500,000 deaths in the world every year. A better understanding of brain aneurysm genesis and rupture may open new opportunities to prevention and treatment. In this study, a part of the cerebral vascular system, the so called circle of Willis including an aneurysm, was analyzed with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)...
