A reexamination of the angiotoxicity of superselective injection of DMSO in the swine rete embolization model.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There are a variety of embolization applications for non-adhesive, liquid agents. We reevaluated the potential microvascular angiotoxicity of superselective infusions of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) using very long infusion rates in a previously described animal model. METHODS Twenty-six swine underwent percutaneous femoral puncture… (More)
