Platelet antagonists eliminate thromboembolic complications of small-diameter arterial prostheses.

Abstract

An animal model suitable for study of the origin and method of prevention of thromboembolic complications of arterial prostheses has been developed in the rabbit. In phase I of the experiments 42 New Zealand white rabbits underwent insertion of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) aortic grafts, 10 mm in length and of 2 mm internal diameter (I.D.) (n = 17) and 3… (More)
