Abstract

Management of unstable angina has evolved progressively. Although coronary angioplasty has recently shown to be relatively safe and effective treatment strategy for unstable angina, aute occlusion due to intracoronary thrombus accumulation during or immediately after coronary angioplasty remains to be one of the most common serious complication of this procedure. Intracoronary urokinase has been used to treat flow-limiting intracoronary thrombus accumulation that complicated initial successful percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty(PTCA) in unstable angina patient, which made the patient stablilzed. Thus in patient with flow-limiting intracoronary thrombus accumulation complicating PTCA, intracoronary urokinase proved to be highly effective in restoring vessel patency and preventing acute myocardial infarction. We report a case of successful revascularization with intracoronary infusion of urokinase in patient with intracoronary thrombus accumulation that complicated PTCA.
