A potent platelet inhibitor combined with an intracoronary thrombolytic agent is aggressive therapy that may be used for high-risk, complex, refractory thrombotic coronary lesions. A retrospective review of the records of 56 patients who received abciximab plus an intracoronary thrombolytic agent during a coronary interventional procedure did not reveal a prohibitive incidence of major bleeding with this combination therapy.
