Platelet accumulation on the arterial wall has been studied after intimal trauma in rabbits and following endarterectomy in patients. Physical and pharmacological factors affecting deposition at the site of arterial damage were investigated and quantified as thrombogenicity. This has been related to the degree of luminal narrowing measured in patients by non-invasive ultrasound, one year after surgery.
