Stress distributions in vascular aneurysms: factors affecting risk of aneurysm rupture.

Abstract

Aneurysm rupture occurs when local wall stresses exceed the tensile strength of vascular tissues. Knowledge of vascular wall stresses, and insight into the factors that change wall stresses, will lead to a better understanding of how aneurysms grow and rupture. In this study, stress distributions in the walls of small aneurysms were calculated using finite… (More)
