Abstract: A cerebral thrombus or blood clot might cause cerebral stroke and even decease if the clot could net be dissolved within several hours after it was formed. This paper presents a fundamental study on development of a new type of mechanical micro stirrer for assisting the dissolutioR of the thrombus with a few amount of thrombolytic agent. The micro stirrer is made of a silght beam embedded with a piezoceli. An efficient excitation meÅíhod for stining up the thrombus to get a quick disseiutien Ss investigated. F…
