D-dimer is a product of cross linked fibrin degradation and is a measure of the amount of fibrin turnover. As such, D-dimer might be of utility in the prediction of both thrombotic and hemorrhagic events. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to evaluate whether elevated D-dimer levels on admission and at discharge could predict subsequent ischemic and hemorrhagic events in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). D-dimer was measured on admission and at discharge in 461 out of a… CONTINUE READING
