Haemostatic clot formation at anastomosis of synthetic venous graft in defibrinogenated dogs: a scanning electron microscopic study.


A segment of the inferior vena cava was replaced by an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene graft in 13 dogs. Five of them served as a control group, while the other 8 were moderately or severely defibrinogenated with subcutaneous batroxobin. Plasma fibrinogen decreased to extremely low values throughout the experiment in the defibrinogenated dogs except in the… (More)
