Accurately modeling thrombosis and thromboembolism remains a challenging hurdle to overcome though great strides continue to be made. The complexity of the coagulation cascade and platelet behavior coupled to complex fluid dynamics and structural changes of a growing thrombus make the modeling quite ambitious and interesting. New approaches including uncertainty analysis and more experimental validation have increased the capacity of prediction for arterial thrombosis, device-induced thrombosis, venous thrombosis, and thromboembolism. This mini-symposium will bring together global experts to share their multi-scale modeling approaches, computational methodologies and validation strategies in an effort to increase the accuracy of prediction and bring these efforts to more clinical utility and medical device design strategies.
