Computational modelling of transport phenomena in cerebral aneurysms

Abstract:

An estimated 85% of haemorrhagic strokes are secondary to the rupture of an intracranial aneurysm (IA), a localised, blood-filled dilation of the artery wall. The clinically observed rupture of occluded IAs has led to hypothesise that the presence of thrombus may restrict the transport of nutrients, most notably oxygen, to the aneurysmal wall, thus heightening the risk of rupture through the deleterious effects of hypoxia on cellular functionality. The limited research into O2 transport wi...
