Computational fluid dynamics results show that the mitral jet propagates towards the apex mainly during the E-wave. A mitral jet that propagates further towards the apex during the E-wave will produce significant apical washout. Thus, the propagation distance of the mitral jet into the left ventricle by the end of the E-wave indexed by the length of the left ventricle should correlate well with apical "washout," and therefore, with left ventricle thrombus risk.

Application The heart is a wonder of design a pump that can function for 80 years, and billions of heartbeats, without breaking down. But when it does malfunction, the results can be dire.

In research reported in the International Journal of Cardiology this month, scientists from Johns Hopkins University and Ohio State University presented a new method for predicting those most at risk for thrombus, or blood clots, in the heart.
