Intracranial aneurysm disease: novel modelling of inception and the microstructural adaption of collagen fabric

Abstract:

An intracranial aneurysm (IA) is a balloon-like focal lesion on the cerebral arterial wall. IAs are poorly understood, but are commonly considered to be a disease caused by multiple factors. Current interventional treatments are accompanied with risks. Given the low incidence of rupture, it would be ideal to only treat aneurysms identified with rupture risk. Numerical models of aneurysm development may provide insight into the disease mechanisms, and contribute to the prediction of disease...
