The effectiveness of clinical treatments in-stent modeling have been recently started to be analyzed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technique. Particularly, variation of pressure loss with flow velocity is used to evaluate permeability and internal resistance coefficients of the flow diverter stents to describe the stent properties to CFD model. The velocity profile is described as pulsatile parabolic at the inlet, the pressure is described at the outlet to be 93 mmHg as a mean arterial pressure (MAP) in the present study. The results implied that there was no significant difference found between porous media and stent implantation of a flow diverter stent modelings based on the studied cases. However, fluid flow simulations indicated that use of 48 wires stent allows more blood flow passing into the aneurysm sac compared to the 72 and 96 wires stents for the studied geometry. Effect of pressure change in the vessel and shape factor of the artery was neglected.
