CBSET's approach to the study of  Thrombectomy & Thrombolysis technologies

Spurred by the high medical burden posed by neovascular stroke as well as peripheral clots and embolisms,  new thrombectomy and thrombolysis technologies are continuously being developed and tested every year. While some aspects of these technologies can be tested using benchtop vascular models, the absence of good animal models has hampered further innovation and safety testing.

CBSET is committed to the development of novel experimental animal models for testing the efficacy and safety of clot retrieval, aspiration and lysis devices, leveraging methods for creating clots with consistent morphology for enabling controlled delivery and adherence, as well as facilitating comparative analysis of technologies using angiographic and histologic assessments.
