The effect of drug-induced thrombocytopenia on direct-current transcatheter electrocoagulation.

Published

Journal Article

Direct-current transcatheter electrocoagulation in vitro produced substantial clots in thrombocytopenic blood in dogs. The splenic artery was occluded in 3 dogs following ristocetin-induced thrombocytopenia. This procedure may produce effective vessel occlusion in patients with platelet-poor blood.
