1. Fibrinolysin has been used in 82 patients without any deleterious occurrences. 2. An excellent response with appreciable shortening of hospital stay was obtained in 60 patients. A good response was obtained in 19 patients. Three patients had a poor response which might be attributed to a longstanding thrombosis. 3. The concomitant use of anticoagulants did not alter the effectiveness or enhance any bleeding syndrome. 4. We believe that fibrinolysin is a distinct advance in the treatment of thrombophlebitis.
