Although biomechanical studies of the normal rat vein wall have been reported (Weizsacker, 1988; Plante, 2002), there are no published studies that have investigated the mechanical effects of thrombus formation on murine venous tissue. In response to the lack of knowledge concerning the mechanical consequences of thrombus resolution, distinct thrombus… CONTINUE READING
