Recent reports indicate that the rupture risk for cerebral aneurysms is less than the risk of surgical complications. Being able to predict the rupture of aneurysms would help making better-informed decisions and avoiding unnecessary surgical operations. The wall shear stress is known to play an important role in vascular diseases. We carry out computational fluid-structure interaction analyses to investigate the influence of the arterial-wall deformation on the hemodynamic factors, including the wall shear stress distribution. The results show various patterns of this influence, depending very much on the arterial geometry.
