Do microspheres with narrow or standard size distributions localize differently in vasculature? An experimental study in sheep kidney and uterus.


PURPOSE To compare standard embolization microspheres (SMS) with microspheres of very narrow size distribution in terms of physical properties and relative distribution within sheep kidney and uterine artery models of embolization. MATERIALS AND METHODS Standard microspheres (SMS; 500-700 mum and 700-900 mum) were compared with narrow microspheres (NMS… (More)
