Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

Subjects had to meet the following inclusion criteria to be eligible for study entry:

  • Less than 17 years of age
  • Clinically stable
  • Occlusion of CVAD (including catheters with valves, multiple lumens, umbilical catheters, and implanted ports)
  • For subjects who weighed >= 10 kg, inability to withdraw 3 mL of blood from the CVAD
  • For subjects who weighed < 10 kg, inability to withdraw 1 mL of blood from the CVAD
  • Ability to infuse fluids at the volume necessary to instill Cathflo Activase into the CVAD
  • Written informed consent and assent (if appropriate) provided by parent or legal guardian and compliance with study assessments for the full duration of the study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Ability to withdraw blood following subject repositioning
  • CVAD insertion < 48 hours prior to enrollment
  • Selected study catheter implanted specifically for hemodialysis
  • Evidence of mechanical, non-thrombotic occlusion of the CVAD (e.g., kink in the CVAD or suture constricting the catheter)
  • Previous enrollment in this study
  • Use of fibrinolytic agent (e.g., alteplase, reteplase, tenecteplase, urokinase, streptokinase) within 24 hours of enrollment
  • At high risk for bleeding events, embolic complications (i.e., recent pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, endarterectomy, clinically significant right-to-left shunt) in the opinion of the investigator, or with known condition for which bleeding constituted a significant hazard
  • Known hypersensitivity to alteplase or any component of the formulation
