    A retrospective review of all patients presenting to a tertiary referral center with acute nontraumatic upper limb ischemia between January 1992 and June 1997 was undertaken to examine the role of intraarterial thrombolysis in the management of such cases. Twenty-one patients were identified in...

    During local intra-arterial thrombolysis (LIT), management of the secondary embolization of a fragmented or dislodged clot can be cumbersome. The fate could be dismal if without pursuit and lysis of the migrated clot. Recently, we successfully managed a patient with acute ischemia due to a large...
