Variations in both spatial and temporal scales must be considered to fully understand cardiovascular diseases. Given these considerations, we investigated the cardiovascular system from the micro- to macroscale using computational biomechanics. This paper presents our findings on mass transport in cerebral aneurysms, platelet aggregation in blood flow, and a particle method for computing microcirculation. Ultimately, these models will help to clarify the biological phenomena surrounding disease processes and will provide a framework for integrating future developments in understanding macro- and microscale biomechanics.
