For More Information:



Thrombolysis, also known as thrombolytic therapy, is used to dissolve clots, improve blood flow and prevent damage to tissues and organs. Holy Name Medical Center’s Interventional Radiologists use a catheter to either inject clot-busting drugs to the site of the blockage or use a tiny mechanical device to remove or break up the clot.

This treatment is often used as an emergency treatment to dissolve blood clots involving the vessels in the legs, heart, brain or lungs. On eligible patients, the procedure is often successful in breaking up the clot before it causes permanent damage to the organs.
