Prediction for future occurrence of type A aortic dissection using computational fluid dynamics
Acute type A aortic dissection (AAAD) is well known to be associated with several factors,such as hypertension, However,
the underlying mechanisms of AAAD are not well understood.
The aim of this study was to elucidate the mechanism of AAAD using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis.
The result shows that The pre-onset high OSI area with vortex flow is closely associated with the future primary entry site.
