Purpose. The purpose of the article is to access possibilities of blood flow mathematical analysis in aortic aneurysm before and after bare metal stent implantation.Materials and methods. Mathematical models of aortic blood flow were based on data received at studying 15 CT-scans of patients with abdominal aorta aneurysms (12) and dissections (3) and their duplex ultra-sound hemodynamic data. At constructing mathematical model the program SolidWorks was used. Working with the program consisted
... program consisted of two stages: establishment of conditions for geometric objects; forming of abdominal aorta model from these objects. In the study hemodinamic aneurysm indexes was evaluated on rectilinear and curvilinear segments. Some of characteristics were variable: diameter, aneurysm wall thickness, its length, elasticity.Results. Correlation of extreme tension into aneurysm wall on rectilinear and curvilinear segments according to aneurysm wall thickness was assessed. Possibilities of pathological blood flow changes correction at bare metal stent implantation into aortic aneurysm were estimated: if presence of bare metal stent were introduced into mathematical parameters blood flow characteristics became almost as standard characteristics. Received data can enhance successful endovascular treatment of aortic diseases with using of bare metal stents.Conclusion. Mathematical models of aortic and vascular aneurysms before and after surgery can be an effective tool in bettering quality of medical help for vascular patients.
