Recent years have witnessed a remarkable expansion in the knowledge of the physiological role of the fibrinolytic enzyme system and its part in the pathogenesis of venous thrombosis. The significant progress which has been made is attributable to a variety of in vitro tests involving the lysis of fibrin clots. The lysis of preformed thrombi, however, simulates more closely the situation as it occurs in vivo. The aim of the work presented in this thesis was to establish a method for the quantitative evaluation of thrombolysis; secondly, to examine some of the factors determining the susceptibility of a thrombus to a standardised lytic stimulus in this experimental model and finally to observe the effects of surgical trauma on thrombolysis.
