Urokinase should be administered in only very controlled settings. I have used a very tiny amt to unclog PICC lines. Then withdrew the medication from the line after the clot was disolved.
However, I believe this should be administered only by a physician when used to break up clots in vessels. Generally I do not see it used for DVT as the risk is generally considered greater than the benefit in this case. It is usually reserved for clots in more critically dangerous locations.
