Effect of inflow and outflow angles on the computational hemodynamics in abdominal aortic aneurysm
Shi, Z. & Li, Z. Y. (2013) Effect of inflow and outflow angles on the computational hemodynamics in abdominal aortic aneurysm. In Long, Mian (Ed.) World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering May 26-31, 2012, Beijing, China, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, Beijing, China, pp. 153-156.
To help with the clinical screening and diagnosis of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), we evaluated the effect of inflow angle (IA) and outflow bifurcation angle (BA) on the distribution of blood flow and wall shear stress (WSS) in an idealized AAA model. A 2D incompressible Newtonian flow is assumed and the computational simulation is performed using finite volume method. The results showed that the largest WSS often located at the proximal and the distal end of the AAA. An increase in IA resulted in an increase in maximum WSS. We also found that WSS was maximal when BA was 90°. IA and BA are two important geometrical factors, they may help with AAA risk assessment along with the commonly used AAA diameter.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
