Pathobiological studies have demonstrated that atherosclerotic lesions have been found on the wall of saccular cerebral aneurysms [1]. We propose a hypothesis that some of these aneurysms are prevented from rupturing due to the atherosclerotic lesions. It has been presented that mass transport of biochemical species such as LDL and ATP, has some important roles in the development of atherosclerosis. A variety of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) studies of the mass transport has been performed for arteries [2, 3], few studies have however, done for aneurysms.
