Hematocrit, Volume Expander, Temperature, and Shear Rate Effects on Blood Viscosity
Our goal was to determine and predict the effects of temperature, shear rate, hematocrit, and different volume expanders on blood viscosity in conditions mimicking deep hypothermia for cardiacExpand

Theoretical and experimental intravascular gas embolism absorption dynamics.
Multifocal cerebrovascular gas embolism occurs frequently during cardiopulmonary bypass and is thought to cause postoperative neurological dysfunction in large numbers of patients. We developed aExpand

Optimizing endothelial targeting by modulating the antibody density and particle concentration of anti-ICAM coated carriers.
Targeting of drug carriers to cell adhesion molecules expressed on endothelial cells (ECs) may improve treatment of diseases involving the vascular endothelium. This is the case for carriers targetedExpand

A front tracking method for a deformable intravascular bubble in a tube with soluble surfactant transport
TLDR
Based on a front tracking scheme, we have presented a comprehensive algorithm for the study of a deformable bubble moving in a tube in the presence of a soluble or an insoluble surfactant. Expand

Model Predictions of Gas Embolism Growth and Reabsorption during Xenon Anesthesia
Background It is not readily obvious whether an intravascular bubble will grow or shrink in a particular tissue bed. This depends on the constituent gases initially present in the bubble, theExpand

Surfactants Reduce Platelet–Bubble and Platelet–Platelet Binding Induced by In Vitro Air Embolism
Background:The effect of gas bubbles on platelet behavior is poorly characterized. The authors assessed platelet–bubble and platelet–platelet binding in platelet-rich plasma in the presence andExpand

Numerical study of wall effects on buoyant gas-bubble rise in a liquid-filled finite cylinder.
The wall effects on the axisymmetric rise and deformation of an initially spherical gas bubble released from rest in a liquid-filled, finite circular cylinder are numerically investigated. The bulkExpand
