Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An acute coronary syndrome patient was treated with tissue plasminogen activator to produce thrombolysis. Six hours post-lysis, haematemesis occurred. Computed tomography (CT) revealed a large haematoma around the lower oesophagus and endoscopy showed a tear in the lower end of the oesophagus. This case represents an unusual complication of anticoagulation and thrombolysis associated with the management of acute coronary syndrome. Conservative management was successful.
