OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of repeated pulsed spray pharmacomechanical thrombolysis for salvage of early rethrombosis of hemodialysis grafts and to identify factors that predict successful outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-four patients with initial successful thrombolysis were referred for repeated thrombolysis because of early rethrombosis. Repeated thrombolysis occurred within 1 month of initial thrombolysis. Technical success and patency rates were… CONTINUE READING
