Effect of 40-kHz ultrasound on acute thrombotic ischemia in a rabbit femoral artery thrombosis model: enhancement of thrombolysis and improvement in capillary muscle perfusion.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We have shown previously that 40-kHz ultrasound (US) at low intensity accelerates fibrinolysis in vitro with little heating and good tissue penetration. These studies have now been extended to examine the effects of 40-kHz US on thrombolysis and tissue perfusion in a rabbit model. METHODS AND RESULTS Treatment was administered with either US… (More)
