To determine if decompression from sea level causes aggregation and embolization of platelets or leukocytes to the lungs, we have measured the accumulation of 51Cr-labeled platelets or 111In-labeled leukocytes in the lungs of rabbits decompressed to 440 or 350 Torr for 18 or 40 h. To be certain that any increased accumulation of labeled platelets (or(More)
Chronic total occlusion (CTO) is a condition that occurs when an artery is completely occluded for > 1 month. The ability of ultrasound to detect microvasculature in CTOs is the focus of this study. The development of a superficial porcine femoral model of CTO by percutaneously placing a dissolvable polymer plug in the artery to promote thrombosis has(More)
