Because we rarely witness the natural process of aneurysm formation, elucidation of the role of biomechanical factors must often rely on the imagined restoration of the parent artery from which the aneurysm arose. In "An objective approach to digital removal of saccular aneurysms: Technique and applications" we propose an automated technique, based on our Vascular Modeling ToolKit, which attempts to take much of the guesswork -- and hence the potential for bias -- out of this process.

Out recently is the first book in Springer's Modeling, Simulation and Applications series, "Cardiovascular Mathematics: Modeling and simulation of the circulatory system", to which Luca Antiga, Joaquim Peiro and I contributed the chapter "From Image Data to Computational Domains". Arising from the EU Project HaeModel, this book is particularly recommended to graduate students and researchers in bioengineering, applied mathematics and medicine who are seeking a mathematically-rigorous foundation to cardiovascular modeling.
