Lysis of intracranial hematomas with urokinase in a rabbit model.

Abstract

Urokinase (UK), a potent thrombolytic agent, was tested in a rabbit model for safety and efficacy in lysing intracranial hematomas. Intracerebral-intraventricular (IC-IV) hematomas were created by stereotaxically injecting 0.2 ml of clotted human blood into the frontal lobe and lateral ventricle of a total of 57 anesthetized adult New Zealand White rabbits… (More)
