Please could you answer the following:

1. The number of catheter-directed thombolysis treatments that have been performed during the last 3 years?.

2. The number of successful treatments during the past 3 years, success defined as the vessel still being patent at follow up preferably over 90 days but dependant on how you log/monitor this etc?.
