Abstract: There is medical evidence of the biologically plausible association of extracranial vein malformations to neurodegenerative diseases, e.g. Parkinson¡¯s disease. This minisymposium concerns mathematical modeling of the brain venous haemodynamics of subjects with extracranial venous malformations. Anatomical data and brain flow measurements are obtained from advanced magnetic resonance imaging. New model equations and advanced numerical methods for blood flow are described. These form the bases of a new global, closed-loop mathematical model for the human circulation. Our model predicts that extracranial venous strictures cause anomalous venous return from the brain and chronic intracranial venous hypertension. Potential implications are discussed.
