This paper presents a patient-derived model for the simulation of the hemodynamics of arteriovenous malformations of the brain (BAVM). This new approach is a step toward the simulation of the outcome of the embolization of the BAVM during treatment planning. More specifically, two aspects of the planning are pursued: simulation of the change of blood flow in the brain vasculature after the blocking of the malformation and simulation of the transport of the embolic liquid. The method we propose is tested on 3 BAVM cases of varying complexity. Twenty two out of 24 main BAVM flow paths have been identified well by simulation.
