Degradable Gelatin Microspheres as an Embolic Agent: an Experimental Study in a Rabbit Renal Model

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate the basic characteristics of degradable gelatin microspheres (GMSs), including their embolic behavior and degradation periods when they are used as embolic materials in the renal arteries of rabbit models. MATERIALS AND METHODS Based on the GMS particle size, 24 kidneys were divided into 3 groups of eight kidneys, and each group… (More)
