Red blood cell modelling

Red blood cells (RBCs) require high deformability to sustain their passage through narrow capillaries of the microvasculature, which is primarily influenced by mechanical and geometrical factors of the cell. Ageing of the cell, several diseased conditions and some extracellular conditions adversely affect the cell morphology and deformability leading to cell rupture during micro-circulation and vesiculation (i.e. the process of removal of defective patches of the RBC membrane forming spherocytes that is associated with the loss of both RBC membrane and …
