• Selective delivery of low-dose streptokinase was effective in the treatment of embolic occlusion of the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries. The two-catheter technique resulted in complete lysis of clot in the celiac artery and improvement in patency of the superior mesenteric artery. The procedure restored effective mesenteric blood flow and provided an alternative to surgery in a very ill patient.
