Abstract

In the present paper, the distribution of the wall shear stress around the apex of the anterior communicating artery (ACoA) in the development process of aneurysm has been studied in laminar steady flow. The anterior communicating artery composing the circle of Willis is one of the predilection sites where the cerebral aneurysm occurs frequently. Once the small aneurysm initiates around the apex in one anterior cerebral artery (ACA) with high flow rate, the distribution of the wall shear stress abruptly changes around the initial aneurysm. With the development of the aneurysm, the wall shear stress distinctly changes along the concaved surface of the aneurysm. The distribution of the wall shear stress in the development process of the aneurysm is physiologically discussed from the viewpoint of hemodynamics.
