Computational fluid dynamics for stroke risk assessment in intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis

Takeaway

  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling revealed significant and independent associations between translesional hemodynamic characteristics and recurrent ischemic stroke in the same territory (SIT) in patients with intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS).

Why this matters

  • Hemodynamic patterns related to recurrent stroke in ICAS may help identify patients at increased risk and identify contributing mechanisms.
