The objective of this study was to assess the effect of distension on the intrinsic fibrinolytic activity of human saphenous vein during its preparation for use as a bypass conduit prior to coronary artery surgery. Fibrinolytic activity was studied using fibrin plate techniques and Chromogenic assays for extractable tPA and uPA. Samples were obtained from… CONTINUE READING
