Computer based simulation is important for clarifying the hemodynamics in brain aneurysm. Specifically, for endovascular treatments, the effect of indwelling intravascular devices on blood stream needs to be considered. Most recent technology for cerebral aneurysm treatment is related with the use of flow diverters to reduce the amount of flow entering to the aneurysms. In this research, we present a new method for design of flow diverters and fitting them to patient specific vasculature models. This methodology enables to change porosity of the flow diverters as well as their location in the blood vessel. One coiling assist stent and two flow diverters were compared to estimate the effect of flow alteration in aneurysm for treatment of a cerebral aneurysm. From the numerical result, we can conclude that pore density and size of mesh affect the hemodynamics in aneurysm and high density and small size of pore produce reduction effect of pressure and wall shear stress on an aneurysm.
