AIMS Previous studies revealed that >/=70% or <30% ST segment elevation resolution 180 min after the start of thrombolysis is a strong predictor of either favourable or poor outcome. The aim of this study was to compare the prognostic value of ST segment elevation resolution at 90 and 180 min after the start of streptokinase infusion. METHODS AND RESULTS The Hirudin for Improvement of Thrombolysis (HIT)-4 study of 1208 patients compared streptokinase therapy in conjunction with either r… CONTINUE READING
