A total of 23 of the 40 patients who had angiographically proven pulmonary embolism and who had initially been randomized to an IV infusion of heparin ( n= 11) or a thrombolytic agent (urokinase or streptokinase, n = 12) were restudied after a mean follow-up of 7.4 years to measure the...
- Thrombolysis and pulmonary embolism. Rowbury, Gemma // British Journal of Cardiac Nursing;Feb2013, Vol. 8 Issue 2, p80
Acute pulmonary embolism is a condition that is associated with serious morbidity and mortality. Thrombolysis is a therapeutic option advocated by national guidelines for patients with haemodynamic compromise. However, this treatment is the subject of debate and there are a number of...
