Substantial enhancement of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) thrombolysis can be achieved with ultrasound, suggesting its use as an adjunctive treatment in thrombolytic therapy for stroke. A microscopic visualization method was used to measure the lysis of human whole-blood clots treated with human fresh frozen plasma (HFFP), rt-PA, and 120-kHz ultrasound for 30 min at T = 37 ° C. The clot-plasma interface was imaged using an inverted optical microscope and the thrombolytic front… CONTINUE READING
