Abstract: © 2018 S. Djorovic et al. The aim of this study was to demonstrate how fluid dynamic parameters are affected by aortic geometry and flow condition in two cases. Case A included blood flow analysis in aortic system with abdominal aortic aneurysm and left common iliac aneurysm before stent graft placement, while in case B was included stent graft geometry, at the site of the aneurysms. An individual patient-specific geometry and a 3D finite element meshes were reconstructed, based on Computed tomography (CT) scan images. The analysis was performed using the possibilities of computational fluid dynamics. It uses numeric methods and algorithms for the simulation of blood flow by solving the Navier-Stokes equations on computational meshes. The computational simulations of cardiac cycles were performed for average blood properties and blood flow rate. The velocity field, pressure and shear stress, as main fluid dynamics parameters, were visualized and compared for cases A and B.
