Risk stratification of cerebrovascular aneurysms using CFD - A review

Karunanithi, K., Lee, C-JORCID: 0000-0002-9360-0923, Zhang, Y. and Qian, Y. (2012) Risk stratification of cerebrovascular aneurysms using CFD - A review. In: 9th International Conference on CFD in the Minerals and Process Industries, 10 - 12 December 2012, Melbourne, VIC



Management of cerebral aneurysms is currently done solely based on clinicians’ experience and knowledge. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD), a numerical method aims to provide data that will help in clinical decision making and in the treatment of cerebral aneurysms. A review of relevant research conducted to date was incorporated in this paper to delineate the current standing in our grasp of the various hemodynamic and morphologic parameters that might play a crucial role in the initiation, growth and rupture of cerebral aneurysms. The limitations of CFD from a hemodynamic point of view are discussed in detail. This helps us to identify the areas of future research that is essential to improve the accuracy of its clinical application.
