View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

The paper reports successful thrombolysis conducted in 64 years old woman admitted to the clinic with clinical and angiographic data for acute surgical abdomen caused by acute tromboembolia of arteria mesenterica superior (AMS). The therapeutic approach required to undertake lifesaving decision on i.e. surgical vs. invasive treatment in conditions of emergency. Finally, it was decided to undertake invasive treatment with successful restoration of blood flow in the related artery. The patient was discharged from the clinic with considerable clinical improvement on the fifth day of her stay. The case report includes discussion on issues relating the consequence of the diagnostic and interventional procedures in such patients, opportunities for conducting emergency thrombolysis in acute embolia of AMS and preventive measures in patients with high tromboembolic risk.

fig2: Initial partial recovery of blood flow at 45 min.

Mentions: The patient was treated with thrombolysis done with 10 mg bolus Alteplase, applied directly in AMS, followed by intra-arterial infusion over 30 min. In the next 1 h and 30 min was done the intravenous infusion of the remaining 50 ml of the thrombolytic. The sheet was left for conducting a control invasive investigation done three hours after the first. The control investigation established a total lysis of the related thrombus, restored blood flow in the artery with residual mural thrombi (Fig. 2, Fig. 3).
