Clinical use of transcatheter electrocoagulation.
Transcatheter electrocoagulation is an effective method of experimental vessel occlusion even in the presence of thrombocytopenia and heparinization. This technique was used to occlude 13 arteries in 3 patients. In vitro testing suggests that intra-arterial bipolar platinum electrodes may achieve the therapeutic objectives more rapidly and with less risk, but more investigative work is required.
