Paper Published: High-resolution CFD detects high-frequency velocity fluctuations in bifurcation, but not sidewall, aneurysms.
High-resolution CFD detects high-frequency velocity fluctuations in bifurcation, but not sidewall, aneurysms". Admittedly we faced some challenges getting this paper published, in part owing to our early (over)enthusiasm about the apparent association between velocity fluctuations and rupture status, but also because of our unavoidable conclusion that the bulk of published aneurysm CFD model studies may not be sufficiently resolved. This latter conclusion may be easy to dismiss because our simulations were carried out under steady inflow conditions (albeit at peak systolic flow rates), but not for long...
