In silico models for thrombectomy

 

Objectives

1. Characterization of clot mechanical behavior, fracture and adhesion and development of new clot constitutive formulations;

2. Mechanical characterization and computational modelling of thrombectomy devices.

3. Development of an in silico modelling platform for the simulation of thrombectomy device performance using anatomically accurate patient specific vessels and clots;

4. In silico optimization of commercially available thrombectomy devices and development of new device concepts.
