Computational modelling of thrombotic processes and complex haemodynamics in cerebral aneurysms

Abstract:

A clot in a cerebral aneurysm can either accelerate the road to rupture, through inflammatory processes and furthering vascular wall degradation, or stabilise the situation by occluding the aneurysm, and thus prevent rupture. A three-dimensional computational model of clotting in patient-derived cerebral aneurysm geometries is presented. The model accounts for the biochemical reactions that make up the clotting process, for realistic three-dimensional haemodynamics in image-derived vascul...
