Recent works have suggested that aneurysm size and shape might not be the only indicators to predict aneurysm rupture. Rather, the long-term interaction between hemodynamics and aneurysmal wall via the loading condition (i.e shear stress and pressure) may also be important. In this work, we investigate the impact of flow pulsatility on the hemodynamic patterns on aneurysmal dome during its growth using numerical simulation.
