This study tried to evaluate the deformability of each erythrocyte by measuring the time constant of shape recovery just after the erythrocytes left the microchannels. We fabricated a microchannel array with a 5μm-square, 100μm-long cross-section on a PDMS sheet. Three different kinds of blood...
Plaque ruptures in atherosclerotic carotid arteries cause cerebral strokes. Accumulation of lipoproteins in the deep intimal layer forms a lipid core (LC), whose progression may be enhanced by mechanical conditions on the arterial wall. In this study, we investigated the pressure conditions of a...
Alginate-poly(l)lysine-alginate microcapsules with a diameter of 200–300 μm were produced and subjected to compression experiments using two rigid parallel plates. The deformed shape was observed, and the relationship between the applied force and the displacement of the plate was measured. A...
Control of angiogenesis is a major challenge to promotion of vascularization in the field of tissue engineering. In particular, shear stress is recognized as an important mechanical factor controlling new vessel formation. However, the effects of steady and pulsatile shear stress on endothelial...
