ABSTRACT
Focuses on the efficacy of antifibrinolytic agent fibrinolysin in the treatment of central retinal artery occlusion. Dissolution of intravascular clots occurring as a result of trauma; Developments observed in a patient injected with large doses of the drug followed by anticoagulant therapy; Adverse reactions involved in the utilization of fibrinolysin.
