This work presents new fluid-structure interaction (FSI) models in both 2D and 3D of the effect of using vascular stents as treatment of cerebral berry aneurysms. The stent is positioned inside the cerebral artery covering the neck of the aneurysm. The stent is expected to alter the blood flow into the aneurysm such that the blood coagulates due to low blood velocity, and rupture of the aneurysm is prevented. A 3D FSI model consisting of three domains (blood, arterial, and aneurismal) is used to investigate the effect of the aneurysm on blood flow. Aspects of stent design such as pore size and shape and strut size, shape, and position are modeled in 2D and 3D FSI models. The models show that pore size and strut shape both have significant influence on stent efficiency.
