The authors estimated noninvasively the wall stress distribution for actual abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) in vivo on a patient-to-patient basis and correlated the peak wall stress (PWS) with various geometrical parameters. They studied 39 patients (37 men, mean age 73.7 ± 8.2 years) with an intact AAA (mean diameter 6.3 ± 1.7 cm) undergoing preoperative evaluation with spiral computed tomography (CT). Real 3-dimensional AAA geometry was obtained from image processing. Wall stress was… Expand
