The research in intracranial (cerebrovascular) aneurysms aims at developing a quantitative assessment of the risk of rupture and at developing novel endovascular treatment techniques. This work is done in collaboration with Dr. David Levy, the head of the Interventional Neurosurgery at San Diego Kaiser Hospital and also an adjunct faculty in MAE. Jointly with my Ph.D students we are performing laboratory measurements to evaluate several potential treatment techniques ranging from packing the aneurysm with platinum coils
|Pulsatile flow inside an intracraneal Aneurysms with a stent||Pulsatile flow inside an intracraneal Aneurysms with two stents|
|Pulsatile flow inside an intracraneal Aneurysms with three stents||Pulsatile flow inside an intracraneal Aneurysms without a stents|
