Flow diverter stents have been used widely for treatment of cerebral aneurysms in the US and EU. Although flow diverter stents are very promising, there are a few clinical concerns such as delayed rupture or incomplete occlusion. Engineers have been addressing these issues using computational fluid dynamics simulations (CFD). Because flow diverter stents have “flow diverting” effects, as the name indicates, we consider that the effects could be predicted by CFD. In this review, I will describe CFD research on clinical aspects of flow diverter stents.
