Rapid prototyping of scaphoid and lunate bones
In this study, a novel rapid prototyping technology was used to fabricate scaphoid and lunate bone prostheses, two carpal bones that are prone to avascular necrosis. Carpal prostheses were fabricatedExpand

Continuous quantitative monitoring of mural, platelet-dependent, thrombus kinetics in the crushed rat femoral vein.
A new in vivo method to study the size and dynamics of a growing mural thrombus was set up in the rat femoral vein. The method uses a standardized crush injury to induce a thrombus, and a newlyExpand

A Technique to Investigate Mural Thrombus Formation in Small Arteries and Veins: I. Comparative Morphometric and Histological Analysis
Numerous clinically relevant animal models exist for thrombosis studies. Few of these are suitable for both arteries and veins. In this investigation, an established venous thrombosis model wasExpand

Antithrombotic properties of L-cysteine, N-(mercaptoacetyl)-D-Tyr-Arg-Gly-Asp-sulfoxide (G4120) in a hamster platelet-rich femoral vein thrombosis model.
Platelet aggregation plays an important role in the pathogenesis in arterial thrombotic disorders. The binding of fibrinogen via the Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) recognition sequence to the plateletExpand

A Technique to Investigate Microvascular Mural Thrombus Formation in Arteries and Veins: II. Effects of Aspirin, Heparin, r-Hirudin, and G-4120
After a standardized trauma to carotid arteries or femoral veins of hamsters, the antithrombotic effects of two antiplatelet agents (aspirin and the glycoprotein llb/llla antagonist G4120) and twoExpand

Inhibitory effect of piracetam on platelet-rich thrombus formation in an animal model.
Intravenous administration of piracetam to hamsters reduced the formation of a platelet-rich venous thrombus induced by a standardised crush injury, in a dose-dependent fashion with an IC50 of 68 +/-Expand
