Vascular occlusion with a ferromagnetic particle suspension. An experimental investigation in rabbits

Magnetically controlled iron thrombosis has been attempted in rabbits. A horseshoe magnet across the jugular vein could arrest injected iron particles in the blood stream so that a well localized, solid thrombus developed. The connection between the strength and orientation of the magnetic field and the force developed on the iron particles was also investigated.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
