abstract

  • With the use of hydrogel-coated balloons, urokinase can be delivered locally to an angioplasty site. This technique decreases platelet deposition after in vivo balloon angioplasty and is efficacious in treating intracoronary thrombus in patients, including those with abrupt thrombotic closure.
