hey, we've successfully treated four of four patients including my most
recent patient taking ticlopidine and Lovenox- we have previously published
a successful experience with duplex guided compression but we had never
successefully treated a pseudoaneurysm with compression in a patient on
ticlopidine, so I'm a believer- plus, it's almost instantaneous vs. hours
