Catheter directed thrombolysis

Concerns that Catheter directed thrombolysis helps with:
Acute arterial ischemia

Catheter directed thrombolysis Is a process by which the occluded artery or vein segment is approached via Catheter through a small needle puncture.
Here we enter and precisely place the catheter with multiple side holes into the thrombosed segment and give slow infusion of thrombolytic agents.

How does catheter directed thrombolysis help with Acute ischemia or acute DVT?

The mentioned concerns occur due to the formation of clots/thrombus in the blood vessel. With this technique, we target these thrombi locally and dissolve them to re-start the blood flow through the vessel. These thrombolytic agents like alteplase, reteplase, tenecteplase etc. work as TPA's. This means that they are tissue plasminogen activators.

These TPAs act locally once introduced close to the thrombus via the catheter and have a minimal effect on the rest of the body. They are thus very effective in dealing with acute ischemia. You will be asked to follow certain after-care instructions after the procedure, which are listed ahead on this page.

Who is a right candidate for the treatment?

There are certain criteria that one has to look at before recommending CDT (catheter directed thrombolysis). It is not performed in cases of:
- Recent heard trauma
- Recent brain or spine surgery
- Uncontrolled hypertension
- Any major surgery within the past 7 days.

How effective is CDT?

The treatment is quite effective for dealing with acute ischemia if the patient presents in time. The success rate for this procedure at Airen vascular is at par with International standards.

What is the cost of Catheter directed thrombolysis?

The cost of CDT treatment depends on the number of vessels and length of segment involved. It also depends on the underlying lesion which may at times be unmasked by thrombolysis. This may then require stenting, which is an additional cost. It also depends on the hardware used. The estimated prices are mentioned below.

Catheter direct thrombolysis without stent Rs. 150000
CDT with stenting Rs. 300000
