Methods to determine the lagrangian shear experienced by platelets during thrombus growth

Pinar, I; Arthur, JF; Andrews, Robert; Gardiner, Elizabeth; Ryan, K; Carberry, J


Platelets can become activated in response to changes in flow-induced shear; however, the underlying molecular mechanisms are not clearly understood. Here we present new techniques for experimentally measuring the flow-induced shear rate experienced by platelets prior to adhering to a thrombus. We examined the dynamics of blood flow around experimentally grown thrombus geometries using a novel combination of experimental (ex vivo) and numerical (in silico) methodologies. Using a microcapillary...[Show more]
