It has been pointed out that some mechanical factors play important roles in a series of physiological or biochemical processes during the thrombus formation. Recently, many studies including the authors’ work qualitatively demonstrated how the thrombus is regulated under the influences of the blood flow and the intercellular molecular bridge using computational fluid dynamics techniques[1–4]. They verified the importance of the balance of them in the process of the thrombus formation. However, few studies have taken into account the existence of the other cell constituents than the platelet such as red blood cell (RBC).
