catheter can further be used to surgically remove the occluding blood clot or install a retrievable stent to prop open the occluded cerebral artery.
Emergent stent placement following intra-arterial
thrombolysis for the treatment of acute basilar artery occlusion.
Because of the initial evaluation with radiological evidence (Figure 1), it was decided that the patient was a candidate for intra-arterial
thrombolytics (tissue plasminogen activator [tPA]) because of arriving beyond the National Institute of Neurological Disorders' recommended 3-hour treatment window (Balci, Utku, Asil, & Celik, 2011; Jones et al.
mechanical options, which are perceived to have a lower risk of causing SICH than thromboly-tics, provide the opportunity to treat patients who are excluded from IV therapy.
To our knowledge the effects of intra-arterial
injection of dexmedetomidine have not been reported previously.
Conclusion: ABS administered to experimental major arterial vessel injury reduced both bleeding time and blood loss under conditions of normal and elevated intra-arterial
In the series of 19 patients he reported, 8 (42%) had a modified Rankin score of 2 (slight disability) or less at 90 days after stent placement after failing recanalization with intra-arterial
tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) as well as treatment with either the Merci clot retriever or the Penumbra clot suction device.
Finally, if for whatever reason a medical professional chooses to use IV push, he or she is on notice that 'INADVERTENT INTRA-ARTERIAL

and subcutaneous administration are contraindicated, the FDA said.
The primary objective of this Phase I trial was to determine the dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), and maximum tolerated dose, of intra-arterial
nafamostat mesilate in combination with full-dose gemcitabine, in patients with unresectable locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic cancer.
These cyclic changes in systolic pressure of pulsus paradoxus can be observed by continuous intra-arterial
pressure monitoring (See Figure One).
