Living tissues continuously undergo growth, i.e. a change in mass, and remodeling, i.e. reorganization or renovation. Modeling both growth and remodeling (G&R) of the vascular tissue is aimed to provide insight into the adaptation of the tissue, in the healthy and diseased state, and upon surgical intervention. An important aspect is the description of remodeling of collagen fiber direction. Whereas a phenomenological approach for that is suggested in , in this study we adopt an approach towards more microstructural approach, along the model in .
