New project granted: Valve thrombogenicity


The Hirsch Foundation is funding a project for the risk assessment of the thrombogenicity of biological prostheses in vitro.

The aim of this project is the qualitative assessment of the risk for valve thrombosis in biological prostheses within an in vitro study. In addition, risk factors for thrombus formation are derived from the site of origin, size and number of thrombi.

This results in the following questions, which will be examined in detail during the project:
Is valve thrombosis in biological prostheses in the aorta underestimated?
Which factors caused by the biological prosthesis lead to thrombus formation?
