PURPOSE The advancement of catheter-based interventions for vascular recanalization has underscored the need for an experimental animal model of vascular thrombosis that can be used for the evaluation of interventional therapies. In this model, a porcine model of deep venous thrombosis with a novel endovascular technique was described, and the efficacy of thrombolytic therapy with urokinase was evaluated. METHODS An endovascular device that consisted of a tapered polytetrafluoroethylene graft… CONTINUE READING
