Kirillova I.V., Kossovich L.Y., Pavlova O.E., Salkovskiy Y.E. Modeling of Hemodynamics and Mechanical Behavior of Pathologically Tortuous Carotid Arteries

Treatment of ischemic cerebrovascular diseases is one of the most challenging problems of modern medicine. Tortuosity of a carotid artery (CA) is a common pathology that may cause ischemic stroke. In this study, 3D FEM models with fluid-structure interactions of carotid arteries with pathological tortuousities of four main types (S-bending,C-bending, kinking, coiling) along with normal CA were built using a real 3D-geometry based on computer tomography data.
