High flow/shear Collagen Normal blood White Clot of platelets, not RBC Paradoxes Paradoxes • • • • Platelet aggregation studies with stasis Biomaterial surface is critical months to occlude (Virchow) Platelet concentration is small collagen, fibrinogen – early adhesion only collagen, GP platelet bonding rate is too slow Shear forces/bond strengths should rip off thrombus GP Ib+vWF ~ 0.1 - 30 sec -> takes hours GP Activation, GP IIb/IIIa ~ minutes -> days • -> Occlusive thrombus should not occur -> not Heart attacks and strokes do not exist! Problem with previous work Problem A. B. C. Coagulation – No Shear Coagulation Normal arteries – Moderate shear Normal Diseased arteries – High shear Diseased For heart attacks Very High Shear Platelet thrombosis review Activation is key - ASA/Plavix o Activation stimulated by shear -> “Shear History” of circulating platelets o Bag of reactants with vWF o Parallel plate deposition Velocity Vectors Transient VWF/Fibrinogen Activated Torque 2.
