BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The anterior communicating artery (AcomA) is a predilect location of aneurysms which typically carry higher rupture risks than other locations in the anterior circulation. The purpose of this study was to characterize the different flow types present in AcomA aneurysms and to investigate possible associations with rupture. MATERIALS(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to show the influence of the upstream parent artery geometry on intraaneurysmal hemodynamics of cerebral aneurysms. METHODS Patient-specific models of 4 cerebral aneurysms (1 posterior communicating artery [PcomA], 2 middle cerebral artery [MCA], and 1 anterior communicating artery [AcomA]) were constructed from 3D(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Studies have shown that the occurrence of brain aneurysms and risk of rupture vary between locations. However, the reason that aneurysms at different branches of the cerebral arteries have different clinical presentations is not clear. Because research has indicated that aneurysm hemodynamics may be one of the important factors(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of unequal physiologic flow conditions in the internal carotid arteries (ICAs) on the hemodynamics of anterior communicating artery aneurysms. METHODS Patient-specific computational fluid dynamics models of 2 cerebral aneurysms were constructed from bilateral 3D rotational(More)
Landscape and site-scale data analyses aid the interpretation of biological data and thereby help us develop more cost-effective natural resource management strategies. Our study focused on environmental influences on stream assemblages and we evaluated how three classes of environmental variables (geophysical landscape, land use and cover, and site(More)

In this paper we present the project InLéctor, aiming to create interactive bilingual ebooks. The goal of this project is to develop a set of applications for the automatic creation of bilingual ebooks. These books allow to switch from the original text to the translation with a simple click and are published in the more popular ebook formats: html, epub(More)
