The genesis, growth and rupture of intracranial aneurysm (IA) are open questions in neurovascular medicine until the present moment. The complexity of aneurysm mechanobiology and pathobiology staggeringly combine intertwining biological and physical processes that are tightly connected. Recently, transition to turbulence in IA blood flow is thought to play a central role in IA growth and rupture as it can be directly linked to endothelial dysfunction. However, the problem of turbulence brings… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Physiologic blood flow is turbulent

This work hypothesizes that the inherited dynamics of blood flow in main arteries dictate the existence of turbulence in physiologic conditions, and shows that physiologic blood flow is sensitive to initial conditions, in global hydrodynamic instability and undergoes kinetic energy cascade of non-Kolmogorov type.

Physiologic Blood Flow is Turbulent: Revisiting the Principles of Vascular Hemodynamics

It is shown that blood flow is inherently chaotic and turbulent and not laminar, which leads to a paradigm shift in the theory of vascular hemodynamics which requires rethinking the hemodynamic-biologic links governing physiologic and pathologic processes.

Origins of Chaos and Turbulence in Blood Flow: Revisiting the Principles of Hemodynamics

It is shown that blood flow is inherently chaotic and turbulent and not laminar, which proposes a paradigm shift in the theory of vascular hemodynamics which requires rethinking the hemodynamic-biologic links governing physiologic and pathologic processes.

The goal is to evaluate if a simple off the shelf LBM would predict the experimental results without the use of complex models or synthetic turbulence at the inflow, and acceptable agreement in jet breakdown locations, average velocity, shear stress, and pressure is found for both the Reynolds numbers.

Experimental insights into flow impingement in cerebral aneurysm by stereoscopic particle image velocimetry: transition from a laminar regime

It is demonstrated that the hydrodynamic instability of shear layer could not be neglected even at a low Reynolds number, and no assumption was found to justify treating the aneurysmal haemodynamics as a fully viscous laminar flow.

High WSS or Low WSS? Complex Interactions of Hemodynamics with Intracranial Aneurysm Initiation, Growth, and Rupture: Toward a Unifying Hypothesis

It is proposed that the β€œhigh-versus-low wall shear stress” controversy is a manifestation of the complexity of aneurysm pathophysiology, and both high and low wallShear stress can drive intracranial aneurYSm growth and rupture.

Multi-time-lag PIV analysis of steady and pulsatile flows in a sidewall aneurysm

The flow transfer in IA and the vortical structure were significantly modified when increasing the number of harmonics for a typical physiological flow, in comparison with quasi-steady conditions.

This study draws a roadmap for next-generation IA CFD models to help researchers investigate the pathophysiology of IAs and demonstrates that the Newtonian assumption, used in almost 90% of studies, might be insufficient to describe IA hemodynamics.

Contribution of the Hemodynamics of A1 Dysplasia or Hypoplasia to Anterior Communicating Artery Aneurysms: A 3-Dimensional Numerical Simulation Study

A1 dysplasia/hypoplasia is a potential risk factor in the formation of ACoA aneurysm formation and wall shear stress decrease and turbulent flow may be responsible for the growth and rupture of ACaAneurysms.

Evidence for non-Newtonian behavior of intracranial blood flow from Doppler ultrasonography measurements

Evidence suggests that the Newtonian assumption may be inappropriate to investigate intracranial hemodynamics and could affect the physical interpretation of IA CFD studies.
