Mathematical Modeling of Thrombus Formation in Pulsatile Blood Pumps
- 3 Downloads
We present here the results of mathematical modeling of the process of thrombus formation in the chamber of a blood pump from a pulsatile-type circulation assist system with an output of 30 cm3 using two types of Russian- made mechanical heart valves. The effects of the type of mechanical heart valve on thrombus formation in the blood pump chamber during operation of the pulsatile-type circulation assist system were assessed.
