Local Thrombolysis in Arterial Occlusive Disease
- Thrombolytic Therapy: Agents, Indication, Clinical Performance, and Side Effects. Tilsner, V.; Greul, W. // Vascular Surgery;Mar/Apr1979, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p79
Thrombolytic therapy is successful in 70% of fresh occlusions and in over 40% of chronic occlusions. Vascular surgery is often superior to thrombolytic therapy on the arterial side, but inferior on the venous side. Streptokinase acts faster and is considerably cheaper than urokinase, but it...
- LOCAL UROKINASE IN ARTERIAL THROMBOEMBOLISM. Fiessinger, J. N.; Vayssairat, M.; Juillet, Y.; Janneau, D.; Cormier, J. M.; Housset, E. // Angiology;Oct1980, Vol. 31 Issue 10, p715
Selective intra-arterial urokinase (UK) is effective in treating recent arterial thromboembolism. However, usually only partials lysis is achieved and this treatment seems less effective than intravenous streptokinase. At a dose of 37,500 UCTA/hour it does not produce systemic fibrinolysis. This...
- THROMBOLYTIC TREATMENT OF VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM. Gurewich, Victor // Vascular Surgery;Nov/Dec1977, Vol. 11 Issue 6, p341
Describes the thrombolytic treatment for deep venous thromboembolism. Objective of thrombolytic therapy; Pharmacologic efficacy of streptokinase and urokinase; Diagnostic procedure for venous thromboembolism.
- Occluding the left atrial appendage: anatomical considerations. Su, P.; McCarthy, K. P.; Ho, S. Y. // Heart;Sep2008, Vol. 94 Issue 9, p1166
Background: Occlusion of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is thought to reduce the risk of thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation. Objective: To examine the LAA and its relationship to neighbouring structures that may be put at risk when intervening to occlude its os. Methods:...
- The Effect of Streptokinase Infusion on Chronic Arterial Occlusions and Stenoses. Verstraete, Marc; Vermylen, Joseph; Donati, Maria Benedetta // Annals of Internal Medicine;Mar71, Vol. 74 Issue 3, p377
Focuses on the thrombolytic treatment of arterial occlusion using streptokinase. Application of a fixed streptokinase administration scheme; Incidence of thrombolysis as a function of the location of the proximal extremity of the occlusion; Side effects of the streptokinase infusion treatment.
- Abciximab added to urokinase increased amputation-free survival in peripheral arterial occlusion of the legs. Hiatt, William R. // ACP Journal Club;Jul/Aug2002, Vol. 137 Issue 1, p12
Provides information on a study that investigated whether a combination of urokinase and abciximab reduce complications and prolong amputation-free survival better than urokinase alone in patients with peripheral arterial occlusion of the legs. Study design and setting; Main outcome measures;...
- Urokinase salvages limbs threatened by severe arterial occlusions. // Geriatrics;Jan94, Vol. 49 Issue 1, p55
Presents information on a research from Miami which showed that infusion of the thrombolytic agent urokinase (Abbokinase) significantly decreases the need for limb amputation in patients with severe arteriial occlusions.
- A Device for Performing Automated Balloon Catheter Inflation Ischemia Studies. Leavesley, Silas J.; Ledkins, Whitley; Rocic, Petra // PLoS ONE;Apr2014, Vol. 9 Issue 4, p1
Coronary collateral growth (arteriogenesis) is a physiological adaptive response to transient and repetitive occlusion of major coronary arteries in which small arterioles (native collaterals) with minimal to no blood flow remodel into larger conduit arteries capable of supplying adequate...
- Left Ventricular Thromboembolic Occlusion of the Popliteal Artery Treated Nonoperatively with Local Urokinase Infusion-- A Case Report. Weisman, Irwin D.; Stanchfield, Warren R.; Herzog, Charles A.; Ney, Arthur L.; Blake, David P. // Angiology;Feb1988, Vol. 39 Issue 2, p179
Recently streptokinase and urokinase have been shown to be useful in the nonoperative treatment of thromboembolic disease. Urokinase is emerging as a safer and more effective thrombolytic agent when applied either to definitively lyse spontaneous thrombosis where no underlying structural lesion...
