A quantitative model of thrombosis in intracranial aneurysms

A challenging project for our European scientific network


The activity of the CNRS team of Thrombus (partner 1) with the University of Tohoku in Japan has been initiated in 2012 through the ELyT Laboratory (Engineering and Science Lyon Tohoku Laboratory). ELyt Lab. is a LIA, an international laboratory which is supported by the CNRS, INSA Lyon, ECL and the University of Tohoku (http://www.elyt-lab.com/). The topics covered by this LIA are mainly linked to the INSIS Institute (Institute for Engineering and Systems Sciences).  

One of the main challenges of Thrombus is to perform the modeling of a flow diverter armed with 48 struts.

The main research topic leads to the modelling of the deployment of a virtual flow diverter within a parent vessel allowing the study of the effect on the blood flow within the cavity of an aneurysm.
