Shock-wave thrombus ablation, a new method for noninvasive mechanical thrombolysis.

Abstract

Successful experimental and clinical experience with thrombus ablation has been attained with high-power acoustic energy delivered in a catheter. The goal of this study was to investigate the feasibility of noninvasive thrombus ablation by focused high-power acoustic energy. The source for high-power acoustic energy was a shock-wave generator in a water… (More)
