A score predicts failure of reperfusion after fibrinolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction.


BACKGROUND A rapid, accurate, noninvasive means of predicting the likelihood of failure to achieve Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) grade 3 flow within 90 minutes after the start of fibrinolysis with streptokinase could help to identify patients who might benefit from additional therapies that aim to preserve myocytes. METHODS We measured ST… (More)
