PURPOSE: The suitability of a rheolytic system for recanalization of aged venous thrombotic occlusions was tested in an animal experiment. METHODS: The system consists of a flush-suction catheter and a high-pressure liquid pump. Thrombosis was experimentally induced in 13 venous segments of 10 adult goats. RESULTS: After a mean period of 12 days, a complete thrombectomy using the flush-suction system was achieved in 12 cases. No complications such as perforation or dissection were observed. CONCLUSION: This system seems to be an appropriate device for percutaneous transluminal venous thrombectomy, even in older occlusions.
