Patient-specific wall stress simulations on abdominal aortic aneurysms may provide a better criterion for surgical intervention than the currently used maximum transverse diameter. In these simulations, it is common practice to compute the peak wall stress by applying the full systolic pressure directly on the aneurysm geometry as it appears in medical images. Since this approach does not account for the fact that the measured geometry is already experiencing a substantial load, it may lead to… CONTINUE READING
