The experimental thrombus prepared using plain sedimentation showed mechanical stability due to its solid fibrin-rich component. The thrombus also showed histologic similarity to the typical thromboemboli recovered from patients with stroke in the course of therapeutic thrombectomy. This new technique may be beneficial for preclinical evaluation of thrombectomy devices.
