Large eddy simulation of blood flow in a realistic model of the Circle of Willis

The dataset was produced using fully resolved Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and multiharmonic rheological flow models in a realistic in silico phantom of the CoW.  Researchers and biomedical engineers could utilize this dataset to fine-tune their CFD models and establish standard reference simulation(s) before carrying out further parametric studies. Having the dataset released under an open-access license encourages the community to further …

Added benefit of carotid revascularisation to modern medical care “needs to be revisited”, study concludes

A pooled meta-analysis found that patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis enrolled in recent randomised controlled trials (RCTs) had a lower risk of stroke after randomisation than historical controls. According to authors Urs Fisch (University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland) and colleagues, their findings add to the current evidence that the risk of stroke associated with symptomatic […]
