Aortic cannula is one of the medical parts used in cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) during medical operation, or used in conjunction with extracorporeal membrane oxygenator (ECMO) operation during patient support in intensive care unit. The existing stock designs produce jet flow or dispersed flow out of the cannula tip. Thus leading to few complications caused by the non – physiological flow. To reduce adverse effect on the aorta, as well as on red blood cells (RBC), a novel approach to induce spiral flow is proposed. The aim of this study to compare between internal helical curve tip aortic cannula designs comprised of three groove and three ribs, and standard curve tip aortic cannula design. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation between three cannula designs were carried out in steady state condition. Spiral flow was successfully induced by the proposed internal helical design. The pressure drop across the cannulae designs recorded below the safe limit, outflow velocity was reduced by 34.5%, while wall shear stress was also acceptable (30.8 Pa – 61.59 Pa – 215.6 Pa) which is below critical wall shear stress value.
