Following Coronary Thrombolysis

  • Sol Sherry


There are many aspects of the subject “following coronary thrombolysis” but probably the most important is the prevention of rethrombosis. This is an area of continuing clinical investigation, and a solution of the problem is most important for improving the efficacy of coronary thrombolysis and for clarifying the subsequent management of the patient.
