Abstract

We applied computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis on the numerical grid of a 3D rotational digital subtraction angiogram obtained in a 22-year-old male patient, with an accidentally discovered vein of Galen malformation associated with single feeder aneurysm, to understand the flow pattern through the two aneurysms and improve our general understanding of hemodynamic characteristics of this variety of fusiform aneurysm. This technical note provides a good example of the application of CFD to 3D digital subtraction angiography for studying the flow pattern in patients with cerebrovascular disease.
