Title: Acute Arterial Thrombosis after Covered Stent Exclusion of BleedingMycotic Pseudoaneurysm: Treatment Using Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis
Author(s): Palestrant, Sarah; Knuttinen, M. Grace; Gaba, Ron C.; Bui, James T.; Owens, Charles A.
Subject(s): thrombolysis catheter-directed
Abstract: Conventional absolute contraindications to catheter-directed thrombolysis include active or recent hemorrhage and the presence of local vascular infection, both of which increase the risk of procedure-related complications such as bleeding and systemic sepsis. For this reason, lytic therapy of arterial thromboembolism under these circumstances is generally precluded. Herein, we describe a unique case of safe catheter-directed lysis of an acutely thrombosed iliac artery following covered stent placement for treatment of an actively bleeding infected pseudoaneurysm. Our management approach is discussed.
