PMID:  2600615     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The development of cardiac catheterization procedures in the pediatric population has evolved from diagnostic in nature to present day advanced technology and interventions. A complication of vessel occlusion secondary to large catheters, length of procedures, and patient size requires immediate intervention. The advent of thrombolytic agents has provided a highly effective mode of treatment in restoring circulation. The use of streptokinase, its efficacy, side effects, and nursing management are discussed.
