Thrombolytic infusion for occluded central venous catheters
For patients with long-term indwelling central venous catheters (dialysis catheters, Hickmans, etc) who develop catheter occlusion, consider infusion of thrombolytic therapy for catheter salvage.
How do you do it, you ask?
This treatment is very safe and is well tolerated.
