Thirty patients with occlusion of retinal veins were treated by a large amount of urokinase intra-venously and effects of the medication on visual acuity, retinal hemorrhage and retinal circulation, to blood coagulation activities and to fibrinolytic activities were studied.

Group A : seventeen cases with branch occlu-sion of retinal veins were intravenously injected 48,000 IU of urokinase dissolved in 20 ml of saline for fifteen days. Fourteen out of the seventeen cases with branch occlusion showed improvements in visual acuity and retinal circulation and showed absorption of retinal hemorrhage.
