OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the potential role of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in therapeutic decision making for treatment of vascular pathologies of the human aorta. METHODS CFD simulations with patient specific geometries and patient-specific inflow boundary conditions obtained with magnetic resonance imaging were performed in three cases: 1) mobile thrombus in the aortic arch in a patient with ischemic stroke 2) acute type II B aortic dissection 3) abdominal aortic aneurysm repaired… CONTINUE READING
