BACKGROUND Quantification of geometric changes of the stent graft (SG) in abdominal aortic aneurysm has been required for follow up of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). The aim was to develop an image-based modeling system (V-Modeler) to investigate these changes over time. METHODS AND RESULTS: V-Modeler was applied to investigate the migration of the(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to develop a simple structural model of aortic aneurysms using computer-assisted drafting (CAD) in order to create a basis of definition for saccular aortic aneurysms. METHODS AND RESULTS We constructed a simple aortic aneurysm model with 2 components: a tube similar to an aorta and an ellipse analogous to a bulging aneurysm. Three(More)
We evaluated the effects of changes in blood flow due to abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery by using a simple zero-dimension model and applied theoretical values to clinical data.The zero-dimension electronic circuit model and diagram of blood flow distribution were created by setting the resistance of the aorta, bilateral iliac arteries, renal(More)
