OBJECTIVE The aim was to quantify and compare the fibrinolytic activity of normal blood vessels (saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, and aorta) and atheromatous arteries (coronary endarterectomy specimens). METHODS Fibrinolytic activity was measured by fibrin plate and colorimetric assays on fresh samples of coronary endarterectomy core, internal… CONTINUE READING
