Microvascular gas embolization clearance following perfluorocarbon administration.


Effective treatment of vascular gas embolism may be possible with emulsified fluorocarbon compounds. We tested the hypothesis that a fluorocarbon emulsion delivered before gas embolization would enhance bubble motion through the vasculature, favoring more rapid clearance. Air microbubbles were injected into the rat cremaster microcirculation in six groups… (More)
