Current research has been directed at the indications for and methods of catheter-directed thrombolysis. Streptokinase, urokinase, and tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) are the most commonly used agents. They are administered by a variety of techniques and in various doses involving intrathrombic infusions, thrombus lacing, high-dose bolus therapy, and pulse-spray lysis. The latter methods… CONTINUE READING
