Abstract

Abstract

Rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) alone is the thirteenth leading cause of death in the United States. Thus, reliable AAA-rupture risk prediction is an important advancement. If repair becomes necessary, the minimally invasive technique of inserting a stent-graft (SG), commonly referred to as endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), is a viable option in many cases. However, postoperative complications, such as endoleaks and/or SG migration, may occur. Computational fluid-structure interaction simulations provide physical insight into the hemodynamics coupled with multi-wall mechanics’ function as an assessment tool for optimal SG placement and improved device design.
