Abstract

Introduction: The Woven EndoBridge device (WEB) is used to treat wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. These devices are deployed inside the sac. Therefore, the mesh structure provides apposition with the aneurysm wall and induces aneurysmal thrombosis. The objective of our study was to evaluate the anatomic and device-related parameters and indexes with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) of the intracranial aneurysms before and after WEB simulation and find their relationship to complete occlusion. Materials and methods: Using the heterogeneous model based on the marching cubes algorithm, we created 3D representations of 27 bifurcated intracranial aneurysms treated with the single-layer WEB device to evaluate anatomic and device-related parameters with CFD. Results: In our CFD analysis, we observed higher large volumes (Va) (0.25 ± 0.18 versus 0.39 ± 0.09, p-value= 0.025) and higher volume to neck surface ratio (Ra) (1.32 ± 0.17 versus 1.54 ± 0.14, p-value= 0.021) in cases with occlusion failure. Conclusions: Large aneurysm volumes (Va) and higher volume to neck surface ratio (Ra) could be associated with occlusion failure in aneurysms treated with the WEB device.
