Both biochemical and mechanical factors have to be taken into account if a meaningful model for the formation, growth, and lysis of clots in flowing blood is to be developed. Most models that are currently in use neglect one or the other of these factors. We have previously reported a model [J Theoret Med 2003;5:183-218] that we believe is a step in this direction, incorporating many of the crucial biochemical and rheological factors that play a role in the formation, growth, and lysis of clots… CONTINUE READING
