There are 40 000 Malaysians suffered stroke and stroke become the third major killer in Malaysia. Stroke happens when the blood supply which carries vital oxygen and nutrients are disrupted by the blood vessel wall ruptures or get clogged. The Gillian Pearce Mechanical Thrombectomy Device (GP MTD) is the device that can remove the blood clot with the concept of suction. However, the pressure must not cause the damage to the blood vessel. Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) will be used to simulate the flow in GP MTD. The movement of clot in blood is predicted using Navier Stokes Equation where two immiscible phases is considered. In the project, three geometry ofGP Device has been designed with the different number of helical spiral which are zero, five and ten helical spiral. The suction pressure is varied to three conditions which are 40kPa, 50kPa, and 60kpa. Suction rate will increase when the suction pressure in increased. Suction rate also increase when less spiral is used but the pressure drop during the suction will increase. Lower pressure drop is desirable for the blood clot removal process to avoid artery rupture.
