Original Abstract

Patient specific geometry is constantly showing itself as a critical input in finite element analyses of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), as well as blood pressure. Unfortunately blood pressure is currently measured according to WHO standards requiring calm patient to ensure repeatability of such measurement. Although the pressure obtained in this way is valuable in clinical assessment of many diseases it is, according to biomechanical fundamentals, insufficient in AAA rupture risk assessment where knowledge of patient blood pressure distribution in his everyday life could be more advantageous. Thus whithin this paper, we have decided to explore the possibility to incorporate the time distribution of blood pressure in patient’s common life into our probabilistic method to obtain the annual probability of rupture.
