PURPOSE To determine the experimental parameters in an in vitro model that influence the thrombus-capturing efficacy of the Vena Tech-LGM filter. MATERIALS AND METHODS The Vena Tech-LGM filter was evaluated in an in vitro model of the vena cava with a computer-controlled flow system with a total of 5,200 thrombi. The influences of the following experimental parameters on the capture rate were analyzed with a multiple logistic regression model: type of testing (single, double, and multiple… CONTINUE READING
