ABSTRACT
An attempt has been made to evaluate fibrinolysin in 33 patients treated for pulmonary embolism or related thrombolic diseases. Six cases of pulmonary embolism are presented in detail. The results suggest that fibrinolysin by itself may not be effective in preventing recurrent embolism. However, an apparently increased rate of roentgenographic resolution of pulmonary infarction indicates that fibrinolysin may prove useful as a supplement to anticoagulation therapy. Evaluation of fibrinolysin in treatment of pulmonary embolism presents several difficulties, and it is evident that it will be necessary to treat many more cases before a more definite opinion on the role of fibrinolysin can be formulated.
