[Treatment of middle stage arterial embolism through both Fogarty catheter embolectomy and directly pouring thrombolytic agents into artery].

Abstract

We treated successfully 9 patients with middle stage arterial embolism through both Fogarty catheter embolectomy and directly pouring thrombolytic agents into artery. In all patients the extremities were salvaged and symptoms disappeared. The patients were operated upon 15, 30, 60 hours and 3, 5, 8, 30, 39, 40 days respectively after onset of the disease. The indications for this treatment are dependent on how many hours last between onset and treatment and whether the extremity is gangrened. The main embolus in the greater artery can be removed by Fogarty catheter, while the thrombosis in smaller artery can be resolved by directly arterial luminal pouring thrombolytic agents, so the result is better if the two methods are combined.
