Thrombolytic retreatment with tissue plasminogen activator for threatened reinfarction and thrombotic coronary reocclusion

Journal Article

Following successful coronary arterial thrombolysis, thrombogenic substrate persists, increasing the risk of recurrent thrombosis, reocclusion, and reinfarction. The preferred treatment in this setting has not been established. Although many patients receive mechanical revascularization, it is conceivable that repeat thrombolysis, primarily with tissue plasminogen activator, represents the most readily available and effective alternative.
