In this review, we examine the possibility of using the computational modeling of hemodynamically-induced thrombosis as an engineering tool for designing vascular implants such as stents, grafts and artificial valves, and procedures such as aneurysm coiling and vascular grafting. The success or failure of such procedures depends strongly on how they affect… CONTINUE READING
