Aneurysm Growth Occurs at Region of Low Wall Shear Stress: Patient-Specific Correlation of Hemodynamics and Growth in a Longitudinal Study
Background and Purpose— Evolution of intracranial aneurysmal disease is known to be related to hemodynamic forces acting on the vessel wall. Low wall shear stress (WSS) has been reported to have aExpand

Phase‐contrast magnetic resonance imaging measurements in intracranial aneurysms in vivo of flow patterns, velocity fields, and wall shear stress: Comparison with computational fluid dynamics
Evolution of intracranial aneurysms is known to be related to hemodynamic forces such as wall shear stress (WSS) and maximum shear stress (MSS). Estimation of these parameters can be performed usingExpand

Flow Residence Time and Regions of Intraluminal Thrombus Deposition in Intracranial Aneurysms
Thrombus formation in intracranial aneurysms, while sometimes stabilizing lesion growth, can present additional risk of thrombo-embolism. The role of hemodynamics in the progression of aneurysmalExpand

Influence of stenosis morphology on flow through severely stenotic vessels: implications for plaque rupture.
Flow patterns and flow-related stresses contribute to the characterization of health risks, particularly the risk of plaque rupture, posed by a particular atherosclerotic stenosis. Blood flow in theExpand
