OBJECTIVE Aortic diameter as the primary criterion in the decision to repair abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) has drawbacks as some rupture below size thresholds, whereas others reach extreme size without rupture. Predictions of static aortic wall stress have also failed to reliably predict rupture potential. The objective of this study was to(More)
Direct numerical simulations were performed on four patient-specific abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) geometries and the resulting pulsatile blood flow dynamics were compared to aneurysm shape and correlated with intraluminal thrombus (ILT) deposition. For three of the cases, turbulent vortex structures impinged/sheared along the anterior wall and along the(More)
