A majority of all deaths in the developed world are related to atherosclerosis, i.e. obstruction of blood vessels caused by growth of the vessel wall. Hemodynamic phenomena, especially wall shear stress, are since several decades thought to influence the risk to develop atherosclerosis; hence simulation of blood flow, either in order to elucidate the relation between the hemodynamic and disease initiation or to study the flow pattern, is an area of intense research [1,2].
