SAMPO, Eduardo A.; BER, Marcos G.; PEYREGNE, Ernesto y MARTINEZ MARTINEZ, José A.. Double conventional doses of streptokinase in a massive pulmonary thromboembolism with a free-floating thrombus in the right atrium. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2004, vol.64, n.3, pp. 240-242. ISSN 1669-9106.
We present a case of severe thromboembolism, with right ventricular dysfunction, high vasoactive drug requirements, sustained shock and a free-floating thrombus in right atrium. Hemodynamic and clinical picture as well as the echocardiographic image were solved after intravenous infusions of two complete doses of streptokinase, separated by an interval of 72 hours.
