<p>The In-Stent Restenosis 2D model is a full y coupled multiscale simulation of post-stenting tissue growth, in which the most costly submodel is the blood flow simulation. This paper presents uncertainty estimations of the response of this model, as obtained by both non-intrusive and semi-intrusive uncertainty quantification. A surrogate model based on Gaussian process regression for non-intrusive uncertainty quantification takes the whole model as a black-box and maps directly the three uncertain inputs to the quantity of interest, the neointimal area. The corresponding uncertain estimates matched the results from quasi-Monte Carlo simulations well. In the semi-intrusive uncertainty quantification, the most expensive submodel is replaced with a surrogate model. We developed a surrogate model for the blood flow simulation by using a convolutional neural network. The semi-intrusive method with the new surrogate model offered efficient estimates of uncertainty and sensitivity while keeping a relatively high accuracy. It outperformed the results obtained with earlier surrogate models. It also achieved the estimates comparable to the non-intrusive method with a similar efficiency. Presented results on uncertainty propagation with non-intrusive and semi-intrusive metamodelling methods allow us to draw some conclusions on the advantages and limitations of these methods.</p>
