Abstract

A model of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) mediated mural clot lysis has been developed. The model treats the clot as a porous two-phase mixture, and includes mechanisms of kinetics and fluid transport of chemical species, and mechanical property degradation as the fibrin dissolves. The model is consistent with experimental lysis of platelet-fibrin substrates in an in vitro whole blood reperfusion model. Lysis time is predicted to decrease with increasing wall shear stress, and increase with increasing plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1 concentration.
