In cases of endothelial injury or exposure of extracellular matrix to blood flow, however, platelets can quickly activate and cover the injured area to stop bleeding. Yes 2004 Apr 15;47(4):259-63, Favaloro EJ, Franchini M, Lippi G. Aging hemostasis: changes to laboratory markers of hemostasis as we age – a narrative review. Therefore, simulations may require hundreds of thousands of FCM particles to represent platelets. Results from (b) replotted here for comparison (−□−). After this time, there was presumed endothelization of the thrombus with a reduction in its embolic potential. U01HL116323. Whether a fully thrombosed TAAD is formed or not could be attributed to the hemodynamics in the false lumen. Cellular and multiscale modeling of platelets were used in several studies [28, 30, 48, 51, 53, 54, 56], where the hydrodynamics of blood is resolved and used to model transport of platelets and coagulation enzymes. The latter sites are less common, and with the identification of an isolated thrombus in one of these sites, one must consider the potential for other explanatory diagnoses or predisposing conditions (e.g., Budd-Chiari syndrome with hepatic thrombus or cirrhosis and associated splenic vein thrombus). By adjusting the interaction forces between the platelet particles, we were able to reproduce the dependence of the growth rate on blood velocity reported in [19]. Thrombus is classified into 3 major groups depending on the relative amount of platelets and red blood cell 1). Adv. If you did not get blood clots, you would bleed to death. A representative thrombus growth rate is plotted in Fig 4a on a semi-log axes, which shows an initial transient followed by a steady exponential growth of the form ∼exp(αgt), similar to in vivo observations of Begent and Born. The flow of plasma with the suspending platelets are solved using dissipative particle dynamics, while the regulatory network of plasma coagulation is described by a system of partial differential equations. The governing equations are written in weak form and the domain is discretized using spectral elements that allow high order Jacobi polynomials. A pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood vessel in your lung becomes blocked by a blood clot (thrombus) that travels to your lung from another part of your body, usually your leg. They also become activated by exposure to sufficiently high concentrations of thrombin, TxA2 and ADP. where ci and Di are the concentration and diffusion coefficient for each reactant, respectively, and Si represents the rate of production or destruction of that reactant. Competing interests: The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. The interaction between the innate immune system and thrombosis is important for thrombus formation and resolution . 2018;5:147, Insull W. The pathology of atherosclerosis: plaque development and plaque responses to medical treatment. The blood gets thicker so that the bleeding stops. Such embolic events are clearly important in vivo. [33] show a different trend, however, where platelet aggregation initiates at the apex with the highest wall shear rate and then spreads to the inlet and outlet of stenosis. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005291.g001. This review will focus primarily on the basic pathophysiology of venous and arterial thrombosis, including assessment of provoking risk factors and further workup that may be advisable following the initial presentation. As shown in the snapshots of Fig 10a, platelets can adhere directly to the exposed collagen and initially form aggregates independent from the coagulation process. (a) A typical example of the number of platelets aggregated in the thrombus vs. time, plotted in semi-log axes. 2018 Jun;45(3):188-189, DeKornfeld GM, Boll J, Ziegler KR, Ratcliff J, Naslund TC, Garrard CL, Valentine RJ, Curci JA. The state of the science on arterial and venous thrombosis is continually evolving, as is our understanding of provoking risk factors, hypercoagulability testing, and medical management. You’ll also have a physical exam so that your doctor can check for areas of swelling, tenderness or discoloration on your skin. Other experimental studies, using both microfluidic devices [33, 42] and macroscopic-size glass stenosis devices [43, 44], similarly focused on the thrombus growth rate and occlusion time inside a stenosis. Thrombosis, formation of a blood clot in the heart or in a blood vessel. (e), (f) and (g) Snapshots of platelet aggregation inside 60, 40 and 20% stenoses, respectively. Thrombosis of superficial veins is also possible, especially with provoking factors such as intravenous catheterization or localized cellulitis; treatment of superficial vein thrombosis does not typically require any anticoagulation. (12) google_ad_client: "ca-pub-9759235379140764", The range of shear rates covered by the proposed model encompass venous and arterial thrombosis, ranging from low-shear-rate conditions in abdominal aortic aneurysms and thoracic aortic dissections to thrombosis in stenotic arteries following plaque rupture, where local shear rates are extremely high. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005291.s001, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005291.s002. Thrombus formation starts in response to injury, activating the hemostatic process. The exact correlation for the variation of [TF-VIIa] is not known, and thus, we assume a cubic function in the form of [TF-VIIa] = [TF-VIIa]0(1 − ([Ia]/[Ia]thr)3). For example, platelets and reactants flow into an AAA and initiate intraluminal thrombus at specific locations in the aneurysm bulge [20, 21]. This mortality obviously depends on location and acuity of thrombosis, with myocardial infarction and cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or stroke accounting for the highest proportion of thrombosis-associated death in the United States 11). There are no standardized guidelines for treatment of mural thrombus. Inherited forms are rare, but include examples such as antithrombin III deficiency, protein C and S deficiencies, factor V Leiden (activated protein C resistance), or prothrombin gene mutations (among many others). Long trips with limited mobility can also become a relative risk factor for thrombosis, especially if concurrent additional risk factors are present (as above). A thrombus is a blood clot that occurs inside the vascular system. There are three main causes of thrombosis: hypercoagulability, injury to the endothelial cells of the blood vessel wall and abnormal flow of the blood.Hypercoagulability, also known as thrombophilia, refers higher levels of coagulation factors in the blood that increase susceptibility to thrombosis. Westein et al. As a result, the thrombus shape modeled by FCM is affected by the local hydrodynamics and fluid stresses. The more you have, the greater your risk of DVT. Funding: This work was supported by National Institute of Health Grant No. [31] solved advection-diffusion-reaction for multiple biomolecules in the coagulation cascade in fusiform-shaped AAAs to predict the location of intraluminal thrombus formation. Significance and Risk Factors for Intraprosthetic Mural Thrombus in Abdominal Aortic Endografts: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Platelets play a key role in blood clotting. where the position vectors for all the platelets are updated at each time step using a second-order Euler forward scheme. Yes We assume that activation delay time is a random number with a uniform distribution and set as τact = 6 ± 3ms for each platelet. They are mostly located in the descending aorta, and less commonly, in the aortic arch or the abdominal aorta. (9). An embolus is often a small piece of a blood clot that breaks off (thromboembolus). In FCM, the translational velocity of each platelet particle is estimated by the local average of the fluid velocity weighted by a Gaussian kernel function. The use of in vivo models of thrombosis, as well as sophisticated methodology to measure platelet signalling and thrombus formation under flow, are important technical developments towards this aim. Deep vein thrombosis can cause leg pain or swelling, but also can occur with no symptoms.Deep vein thrombosis can develop if you have certain medical conditions that affect how your blood clots. 2018 Nov;50(11):2067-2072, Desouza N, Sood A, Baciewicz FA, Cardozo S. Traumatic Aortic Mural Thrombus Diagnosed Echocardiographically before Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair. Next, we present a phenomenological model that correlates the adhesion force to the local shear rate. If thrombus do not resolve after 2 weeks of heparin therapy, then surgery is an option. Although the present adhesive potential is not capable of directly addressing the kinetics of bond formation/dissociation, it can capture different binding phenomena implicitly due to the effect of local flow conditions and shear rates. e1005291. This thrombus can separate from the ventricle and travel through arteries, blocking any blood vessels 3). https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005291.s003. Author Summary Hemostasis (thrombus formation) is the normal physiological response that prevents significant blood loss after vascular injury. The effect of increasing the size of injury marginally affects the exponential growth rates, whereas the increase in platelet density increases the exponential growth rates more notably. Biasetti et al. An embolus is anything that travels through the blood vessels until it reaches a vessel that is too small to let it pass. Thrombosis occurs when blood clots block veins or arteries. These results suggest that platelet aggregation on collagen coated walls is centered mostly at the stenosis apex where wall shear rates are the highest, but spreading to the inlet and outlet regions of the stenosis. Heart failure promotes stasis in the venous system that can lead to DVT. Similar threshold response was also observed in the in vitro experiments of Shen et al. The initial lipid plaques evolve into fibrous plaques. Platelet adhesion occurs via receptor-ligand bindings, but many different receptors and ligands are active under different shear conditions. Damage to your veins from the blood clot reduces blood flow in the affected areas, which can cause: To diagnose deep vein thrombosis, your doctor will ask you about your symptoms. (1) (2) (3) University of Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES, Received: July 1, 2016; Accepted: December 7, 2016; Published: January 17, 2017. Here, platelet aggregation is caused by perfusing whole blood over surfaces coated by vWF/fibrinogen. After this process is activated, it remains critical to contain thrombus formation so that it is localized to the site of injury and to modulate thrombus size to be proportionate to the injury. The kinetic constants, also obtained from experimental data, are given in the table’s caption. 12) speculated that these two types of thrombosis are triggered by the same biological stimuli that activate coagulation and inflammatory pathways. Our proposed model based on FCM falls in this category. Hemodynamics plays a key role in transporting the platelets to the thrombogenic area via advection and diffusion. We use the same FCM Gaussian kernel function to evaluate the spatial distribution of ADP release from each platelet We present the calibration of parameters in Eq (10) based on carefully chosen experimental data from the literature, where the platelet aggregation process is mainly separated from the complex biochemistry of the coagulation cascade. Valvulitis or an aneurysm induces it. As expected, the wall shear rate intensity increases by increasing the flow rate, thus leading to smaller thrombus size inside the stenosis in the case of 28,000 s−1. We propose a shear-dependent platelet adhesive model based on the Morse potential that is calibrated by existing in vivo and in vitro experimental data and can be used over a wide range of flow shear rates (). Our initial numerical observations based on the kinetic rates taken from Anand et al. Semin. A schematic of the simulation domain is shown in Fig 5, where the channel height is 50μm and its depth is 35μm. The mean flow velocity at the channel inlet is set as , equivalent to Re ≈ 0.5 and an inlet wall shear rate consistent with the microchannel experiment [14]. Thrombosis occurs throughout our arterial system, especially in those with predisposing cardiovascular risk factors. No, Is the Subject Area "Platelet aggregation" applicable to this article? An understanding of the basic pathophysiology of thrombosis and provoking risk factors can aid clinicians in the diagnosis, workup, and management of this condition. However, some studies have proven that there is a link between these two types of thrombosis. Under pathologic flow conditions where the shear rates are extremely high, the inter-platelet distance r is most likely to be ≈ 3d, where the same adhesive energy landscape will not be able to slow down or arrest the platelets. When this happens, the blood flow is stopped by the embolus. The resulting clots can form under different flow conditions in the veins as well as the arteries. To couple the porosity of fibrin network to the local flow field we introduce a Brinkman term in the form of − (μ/k) u to the right hand side of the NS Eq (1), where μ is the blood viscosity and k is permeability inside the fibrin network, and is considered to be locally varying with the concentration of fibrin. Kamada et al. 2017;906:273-283. These models could also become expensive depending on the number of species considered, and their outputs are generally more prone to uncertainty due to a large set of input parameters. In atherosclerotic arteries, the presence of plaques generates fluid mechanical conditions that promote high-shear platelet aggregation and thrombus formation [14, 15]. [15] is the enhanced platelet aggregation at the outlet of stenosis compared to its inlet. At the site of injury, we assume that the subendothelium-bound TF-VIIa complex drives the extrinsic pathway of the coagulation cascade through the subendothelium reactions that are represented by Neumann boundary conditions in the form of −Dj∂cj/∂n = Bj. To initiate and drive the coagulation, a spatially varied concentration level of subendothelium-bound TF-VIIa complex is prescribed at the site of injury. Both are usually well tolerated. When you have a bleeding disorder, you’re unable to make strong clots quickly or at all. Such detailed models are normally very expensive due to the presence of individual cells and the large set of differential equations related to the biochemistry of coagulation. The intrinsic pathway is initiated when XII is activated to XIIa. (8) At higher and intermediate shear rates, the energy landscape still remains unchanged. Heparin binds to and activates the enzyme inhibitor antithrombusn III, and warfarin inhibits vitamin K epoxide reductase, both enzymes needed to produce clotting factors. Biol. As blood velocity increases to 400 μm/s, more platelets are delivered to the injured region, contributing to faster growth rate. Surgical procedure includes thrombectomy, segmental aortic resection, thromboaspiration, and endoluminal stent grafts. The repulsive forces rise exponentially for inter-platelet distances less than r < d to prevent cellular overlap. Morse potential is used in this study to mimic inter-platelet attractive/repulsive forces. The effect of the platelets on the flow field is incorporated into the body force term f (x, t) in the Navier-Stokes Eq (1). Further, the concentration profiles of ADP in Fig 10c show an increase as more platelets aggregate and release their granule including ADP. The major risk of left ventricular thrombus is subsequent embolization with stroke or major organ loss. The binding kinetics are thus diverse and for some integrins not very well characterized, thus inclusion of these details in numerical models will increase their uncertainty as well as the associated computational cost. When considering venous thromboembolism (VTE), an appreciation of the anatomy of the deep veins of the extremities and the pulmonary system is helpful. Three major groups are white thrombus, characterized by a predominance of platelets; red thrombus characterized by a predominance of red blood cell; and mixed with features of both white and red thrombus.
