Investigating magnetically targeted microbubbles for ultrasound-enhanced thrombolysis

Abstract:

Despite therapeutic advances, ischaemic stroke remains one of the leading causes of mortality and disability worldwide. Microbubble-enhanced sonothrombolysis is an advantageous method to accelerate the reopening of occluded arteries, but further improvements in safety and efficacy are required to attain widespread clinical implementation. This thesis investigates the potential of magnetically targeted microbubbles to enhance sonothrombolysis. First, a computational and experimental model...
