Abstract

Thrombolysis is a safe and effective treatment alternative for acute peripheral thromboembolic disease. Good results have been described for both acute and subacute arterial and venous thromboembolic events. While the best pharmacologic regimen for catheter-directed infusion remains to be determined, a variety of effective regimens have been reported. Emerging alternatives such as the use of combined platelet inhibitors and thrombolytic agents as well as mechanical thrombolysis are promising. This article will discuss some of the concepts, techniques, and results of thrombolysis as well as present a brief report on the data presented at the 2002 Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology (SCVIR) annual meeting.
