Title: A review of computational hemodynamics in middle cerebral aneurysms and rheological models for blood flow
Issue Date: 2015-05-01
Abstract: Cerebrovascular accidents are the third most common cause of death in developedcountries. Over recent years, CFD simulations using medical image-based anatomicalvascular geometries have been shown to have great potential as a tool for diagnostic andtreatment of brain aneurysms, in particular to help advise on the best treatment options.This work aims to present a state of the art review of the different models used in CFD,focusing in particular on modeling blood as a viscoelastic non-Newtonian fluid in orderto help understand the role of the complex rheological nature of blood upon the dynamicsof middle cerebral aneurysms. Moreover, since the mechanical properties of the vesselwalls also play an important role in the cardiovascular system, different models forthe arterial structure are reviewed in order to couple CFD and computational soliddynamics to allow the study of the fluid-structure interaction (FSI).
