Nine patients with demonstrable cerebral or carotid occlusions have been treated with fibrinolysin. The results of treatment have been interpreted on the basis of follow-up angiograms or postmortem studies. Favorable results marked by vascular clearing have been obtained in 4 cases. Three of these were embolic in nature. A partially favorable result was observed in 2 cases. Of the 3 apparent failures of therapy, only one could be established with certainty. This work remains conjectural and does not warrant conclusions at this time. The specific usefulness of fibrinolysin in embolic cerebral occlusions, however, is strongly suggested.

    Thrombolysis with intravenous rt-PA is the current therapy for acute ischemic stroke. Unlike other outcome factors, relatively little is known about the prognostic value of the occlusion site on treatment outcome. We compared the effectiveness and safety of intravenous thrombolysis in patients...

    Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) or ischemic stroke may complicate thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO). However, there has been debate regarding the mechanism of ischemic stroke in TAO. We report the case of a patient with TAO who developed repeated TIAs. An angiogram showed multiple alternative...

    BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Hyperdense middle cerebral artery sign (HMCAS) on CT is a well known indication of thromboembolic arterial occlusion. Its disappearance after thrombolytic therapy is poorly described. Taking the rate of HMCAS disappearance as a surrogate for MCA recanalisation, its...

    Peripheral cerebral aneurysms are difficult to treat with preservation of the parent arteries. We report the clinical and angiographic outcome of 12 patients with cerebral aneurysms located peripherally. In the past five years, 12 patients, six females and six males, presented at our institution...

    This study assessed the short-term effects of thrombolytic treatment in 38 patients with massive pulmonary embolism. Thirty-two were treated with streptokinase and six with urokinase. Intrapulmonary artery instillation of fibrinolytic agents was utilized except in 3 patients. There was a marked...
