The transport of platelets in blood is commonly assumed to obey an advection-diffusion equation. Here we propose a disruptive view, by showing that the random part of their velocity is governed by a fat-tailed probability distribution, usually referred to as a Levy flight. Although for small spatio-temporal scales, it is hard to distinguish it from the generally accepted "red blood cell enhanced" Brownian motion, for larger systems this effect is dramatic as the standard approach may…

The Effects of Micro-vessel Curvature Induced Elongational Flows on Platelet Adhesion
TLDR
The effects of channel curvature on cellular blood flow are investigated by simulating the accurate cellular movement and interaction of red blood cells and platelets in a half-arc channel for multiple wall shear rate and hematocrit values and show significant differences.
Palabos-npFEM: Software for the Simulation of Cellular Blood Flow (Digital Blood)
TLDR
Palabos-npFEM provides, on top of a CPU-only version, the option to simulate the deformable bodies on GPUs, thus the code is tailored for the fastest supercomputers.
Digital blood in massively parallel CPU/GPU systems for the study of platelet transport
TLDR
A highly versatile computational framework for the simulation of cellular blood flow focusing on extreme performance without compromising accuracy or complexity is proposed, suitable for upcoming exascale architectures.

Analysis of mechanisms for platelet near-wall excess under arterial blood flow conditions
TLDR
A novel lattice Boltzmann-immersed boundary method is used to simulate, in two dimensions, the motion of dense red blood cell suspensions and their effect on platelet-sized particles and finds that the effective lateral platelet diffusivity depends strongly on lateral position.

A Continuum Model for Platelet Transport in Flowing Blood Based on Direct Numerical Simulations of Cellular Blood Flow
TLDR
The mechanics of platelet margination can be explained by RBC-enhanced shear-induced diffusion of platelets in the R BC-filled region combined with platelet trapping in theRBC-free region and a simple continuum model is introduced based on the proposed mechanism.

Spherization of red blood cells and platelets margination in COPD patients.
TLDR
The results show that the RBCs of COPD patients are more spherical than those of healthy volunteers and additional studies are needed to better understand the possible association between the R BCs effect on the platelets transport and the increased cardiovascular events observed in COPd patients.
