ABSTRACT
A study of the use of fibrinolysin in the prevention of thrombus formation in small artery anastomoses is reported. Under the conditions of this experiment no beneficial effect was observed. Our experience with the use of fibrinolysin in 9 vascular operations is also described briefly. With the dosage used in our dog experiments there was no adverse effect noted as might have been indicated by excessive bleeding or wound hematomas. Pyrogenic response has been the only ill effect noted in clinical use. It is believed that further study with larger amounts and more frequent use is warranted.

    1. In the doses used, the toxic potential of fibrinolysin is limited primarily to temperature elevation. In the absence of prophylactic medication, a febrile reaction occurred in 44.4 per cent of the patients, and could be correlated only with the presence of extensive thrombotic material. 2....
