Morphological characterization and fluid dynamics simulations were carried out to classify the rupture status of 71 (36 unruptured, 35 ruptured) patient specific cerebral aneurysms using a machine learning approach together with statistical techniques. Eleven morphological and six hemodynamic parameters were evaluated individually and collectively for significance as rupture status predictors. The performance of each parameter was inspected using hypothesis testing, accuracy, confusion matrix…

Hemodynamic–Morphologic Discriminants for Intracranial Aneurysm Rupture
Hemodynamics is as important as morphology in discriminating aneurysm rupture status with high AUC values, and all 3 models—morphological only, hemodynamic only, and combined—discriminate intracranial aneurYSm rupturestatus with highAUC values.
Determining Significant Morphological and Hemodynamic Parameters to Assess the Rupture Risk of Cerebral Aneurysms
Hemodynamics and morphology are recognized as major factors in the rupture risk of cerebral aneurysms, and exploration of their relationship is necessary to establish a method that can be employed by
Development and internal validation of an aneurysm rupture probability model based on patient characteristics and aneurysm location, morphology, and hemodynamics
The model combining variables from various domains was able to discriminate between ruptured and unruptured aneurysms with an AUC of 86%.
Rupture Resemblance Score (RRS): toward risk stratification of unruptured intracranial aneurysms using hemodynamic–morphological discriminants
Previous regression models based on hemodynamic–morphological parameters are able to discriminate rupture in a new cohort in the same population, and the prospective application of the RRS to unruptured aneurysms shows that it could provide additional insights for treatment decisions.
On the assessment of abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture risk in the Asian population based on geometric attributes
This study aims to review retrospectively the records of Asian patients diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysm to investigate the potential correlations between clinical and morphological
Morphological and Hemodynamic Parameters for Middle Cerebral Artery Bifurcation Aneurysm Rupture Risk Assessment
D/W and EL might be the most two favorable factors to predict rupture risk of MCA bifurcation aneurysms.
Hemodynamic–morphological discriminant models for intracranial aneurysm rupture remain stable with increasing sample size
The authors' original hemodynamic–morphological rupture prediction models are stable and improve with increasing sample size, and results from resampling statistical simulations provide guidance for designing future large multi-population studies.
Size ratio and aneurysm angle are promising new morphological metrics for IA rupture risk assessment because these parameters account for vessel geometry and may bridge the gap between morphological studies and more qualitative location-based studies.
Characterization of cerebral aneurysms for assessing risk of rupture by using patient-specific computational hemodynamics models.
An image-based patient-specific numeric models can be constructed in an efficient manner that allows clinical studies of intra-aneurysmal hemodynamics, and interesting trends in the association between hemodynamic features and aneurysmal rupture were found.
Association between hemodynamics, morphology, and rupture risk of intracranial aneurysms: a computational fluid modeling study
The objective of the study was to examine the correlations between intracranial aneurysm morphology and wall shear stress (WSS) to identify reliable predictors of rupture risk and to show two different pathological changes associated with high or low WSS in wide-neckedAneurysms.
