The haemodynamics of endovascular aneurysm treatment: a computational modelling approach for estimating the influence of multiple coil deployment.
This paper proposes a novel computational methodology for modelling the haemodynamic effects of endovascular coil embolization for cerebral aneurysms. We employ high-resolution 3-D angiographic data to reconstruct the intracranial geometry and we model the coiled part of the aneurysm as a porous medium, with porosity decreasing as coils are inserted. The actual dimensions of the coils employed are used to determine the characteristics of the porous medium. Simulation results for saccular aneu...Expand abstract
