Researchers Tease Out Turbulence-Causing Mechanism To Reduce Blood Clot Formation Around Mechanical Heart Valves

Engineers from the University of Bern has identified a mechanism that significantly contributes to blood turbulence around mechanical heart valves. The researchers, from the Cardiovascular Engineering Group at the ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research at the University of Bern, tackled the problem of what they termed an “unphysiological turbulent flow in the ascending aorta” … Continue reading Researchers Tease Out Turbulence-Causing Mechanism To Reduce Blood Clot Formation Around Mechanical Heart Valves
