Efficacy of adjunctive thrombolytic therapy in percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty

Journal of the American College of Cardiology
P T Vaitkus, W K Laskey

Abstract

Adjunctive thrombolysis has not been shown to improve angioplasty success or complication rates in elective angioplasty or myocardial infarction and may be detrimental in unstable angina. Thrombolysis of chronically occluded vessels achieves recanalization at a rate comparable to conventional angioplasty and is associated with a high rate of complications and limited long-term patency. Thrombolysis administered for thrombus or acute occlusion complicating angioplasty usually achieves coronary artery patency but is unable to forestall complications in many cases. A benefit of thrombolysis in reducing restenosis has not been conclusively demonstrated.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
