Thrombus is commonly found in the plaque region of atherosclerosis, leading to acute myocardial infarction, known as a heart attack. Arterial thrombosis, which is mostly composed of platelets, can occlude a blood vessel by accumulating enough platelets to block blood flow. Understanding the relative contribution of platelet transport and platelet adhesion to thrombus growth rates is germane to predicting and treating at-risk lesions for thrombus growth.
