Ultrasound (US) accelerates enzymatic fibrinolysis in vitro and in animal models, and may be a useful adjunctive therapy for clinical thrombolysis. Successful clinical application will depend on the selection of appropriate US parameters to optimize fibrinolytic enhancement while limiting adverse effects, including heating. Most studies have been done at megahertz frequencies, but tissue penetration is better and heating less at lower frequencies. We have, therefore, now investigated the… CONTINUE READING
