Clot friction variation with fibrin content; implications for resistance to thrombectomy.

Gunning GM1, McArdle K1, Mirza M1, Duffy S1,2, Gilvarry M1, Brouwer PA3. Abstract BACKGROUND: Despite significant advancements in the procedural efficacy of mechanical thrombectomy in patients with ischemic stroke in recent years, there still remains a portion of the population that does not achieve good recanalization. The reasons for this may be varied. We hypothesized Read more about Clot friction variation with fibrin content; implications for resistance to thrombectomy.[…]
