Realistic computer modelling of stent retriever thrombectomy: a hybrid finite-element analysis-smoothed particle hydrodynamics model

This study demonstrated that coupling FEA and SPH techniques could realistically model stent retriever thrombectomy and was able to accurately simulate clot deflection and penetration of stent wires into the clot, the relative movement of the clot and stent during extraction, and clot fragmentation/embolus formation.

Numerical investigation of the effect of a porous block and flow injection using non-Newtonian nanofluid on heat transfer and entropy generation in a microchannel with hydrophobic walls

The microchannel cooling technology is an efficient procedure for dissipating heat from high-power devices. In this research, forced convective and entropy generation of a non-Newtonian fluid (water)…

[Mathematical modeling of high-flow extra-intracranial bypass in the treatment of a complex cerebral aneurysm].

The study showed that virtual preoperative CFD modeling could significantly simplify and improve surgical planning and demonstrated an increase in the blood flow on the affected side by more than 70% after the virtual surgery and uniformity of flow distribution between the affected and contralateral sides, indicating that the treatment is likely to be efficient.



Flow diverter stents simulation with CFD: porous media modelling

Intracranial aneurysm treatment with flow diverters stent (FDs) is a minimally invasive approach for use in human patients. Because this treatment is strongly related to blood flow, flow simulation…

Modeling hemodynamics after flow diverter with a porous medium

A novel approach for modeling hemodynamics after flow diverter (FD) stent in cerebral aneurysms is proposed and device design and multiple FD placements can be evaluated without remeshing the fluid domain.

Numerical study of hemodynamics in brain aneurysms treated with flow diverter stents using porous medium theory

A novel volume penalization method that considers flow diverters as heterogeneous porous media is presented, which requires a considerably smaller number of mesh elements, leading to faster simulation runtimes and aneurysmal kinetic energy and inflow rate metrics were consistent with those from conventional approaches.

Intracranial Stents Being Modeled as a Porous Medium: Flow Simulation in Stented Cerebral Aneurysms

Results predicted by the porous medium approach compare well with the real stent geometry model and allow predicting the main effects of the device on intra-aneurismal flow, facilitating thus the analysis.

Evaluation of Two Fast Virtual Stenting Algorithms for Intracranial Aneurysm Flow Diversion.

Modeling stent expansion is critical for preventing unrealistic bulging effects and thus should be considered in virtual FD deployment algorithms.

Modelling flow-diverting stent as porous medium with different permeabilities in the treatment of intracranial aneurysms: a comparison of a successfully treated case and an unsuccessful one

This study simulated the porous medium stent with a range of permeabilities to provide future FD modellers with information about suitable selection of permeability level for different aneurysm cases and showed considerable differences in the relative flow- diversion between the clinically observed successful and unsuccessful case.

Parametric study of porous media as substitutes for flow-diverter stent

【For engineers, generating a mesh in porous media (PMs) sometimes represents a smaller computational load than generating realistic stent geometries with computer fluid dynamics (CFD). For this…
