Thrombolysis is a treatment used to dissolve or break up blood clots in the blood vessels. This procedure is used to treat mesenteric ischemia caused by a stationary solid-mass blood clot that develops in one of the mesenteric arteries. Clots can form abnormally in the blood vessels as a result of certain diseases and or genetic factors. There are two main methods of thrombolysis. Chemical thrombolysis is performed with the use of clot-dissolving medications delivered directly into the affected artery to dissolve it. These medications may be delivered with an injection, or they can be given through a catheter threaded into the affected artery. Mechanical thrombolysis involves the physical break up of the blood clot using a catheter. The catheter end is equipped with a rotating device, ultrasound device, a tiny suction cup, or a high-speed fluid jet. Thrombolysis is a treatment option commonly used when the blockage causing mesenteric ischemia is emergent.
