current definition a bit too limited[edit]

Thrombolysis isn't just pharma, it can also be done though devices --e.g. Those that use HIFU. -- (talk) 23:21, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I suggest merging Thrombolytic drug into Thrombolysis. There's an awful lot of overlap between the two articles at present. Both are quite short and both have been around since 2004. Comments? Qwfp (talk) 16:08, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Both could be merged into a subheading under Fibrinolysis, a full entry that provides an extensive set of references. (talk) 20:56, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Both of these articles really belong under Fibrinolysis as the drugs interact with this system. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:22, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

I'm not in favor, these seems distinct enough topics that we should leave them separate, even if they are currently similar. Ultrasound thrombolysis and other invasive non-drug treatments are on the horizon. Pro crast in a tor (talk) 19:28, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
