Title:
A comparison of diameter, wall stress and rupture potential index for abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture risk prediction 
Abstract:
An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a balloon-like dilation of the aorta, which is potentially fatal in case of rupture. Computational finite element (FE) analysis is a promising approach to a more accurate and patient-specific rupture risk prediction. AAA wall strength and rupture potential index (RPI) calculation are implemented in our FE software. Static structural FE simulations are performed on n = 30 non-ruptured asymptomatic, n = 9 non-ruptured symptomatic, and n = 14 ruptured AAAs. W...    »
