An experimental study on thrombogenicity of various metallic microcoils with or without thrombogenic coatings.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Various metallic microcoils have been used as effective embolic materials (stainless steel, tungsten, and platinum). It also has been reported in several articles that the thrombogenicity of coils increased after soaking in thrombin solutions. To compare the thrombogenicity, the authors performed in vitro study, measuring whole… CONTINUE READING
