The particularities of this case consists of a young patient with recurrent deep venous thrombosis and massive pulmonary embolism, with confirmed thrombophilia (heterozygous for MTHFR C 667 T mutation), with recurrent embolism despite catheter-directed thrombolysis, slow clinical amelioration under prolonged streptokinase infusion with no significant changes in thrombus burden at discharge, and a good evolution after chronic oral anticoagulation.
Here we report an antenatal case of aortic PVT, presenting in first trimester and thrombolysed with streptokinase.
Streptokinase is the lone nonfibrin-specific thrombolytic agent available in the pharmaceutical market (Vaishnavi et al.
Streptokinase (SK) is a non-protease plasminogen activator, produced by certain streptococci and certain bacteria which contain appropriate genetic material derived from streptococci of Lancefield groups A, C or G.
We have performed the clinical trial to demonstrate efficacy and safety of IATT with streptokinase as a thrombolytic agent in ischemic stroke patients hospitalized at the Republican Research Center of Emergency Medicine (Tashkent, Uzbekistan).
