Abstract

This chapter reviews the transcatheter treatment of thrombosis and thromboembolism in the pediatric patient. Thrombosis is diagnosed with increasing frequency in children with complex and chronic disease who require intravascular manipulation. Thrombosed vessel segments can be reconstructed safely and effectively with transcatheter therapy. Long-term patency of these vessels has not been well documented as of this writing. Ongoing evaluation of treatment modalities is needed in this vulnerable and growing population.
