The catheter wall simulating thrombus formation seen on pullout angiograms: an experimental study.

Abstract

The authors investigated the nature of a radiolucent line that was seen paralleling the radiopaque catheter wall on more than 70% of 176 pullout angiograms. Although this line may indicate a thrombus sleeve, accumulation of thrombus was rarely seen at the puncture site. A series of experiments demonstrated clearly that (a) an identical line could be… (More)
