Coronary artery patency after thrombolytic therapy has important prognostic implications for survival after acute myocardial infarction. The ability to noninvasively identify patients early after thrombolysis may therefore allow other strategies, such as adjunctive therapy or rescue angioplasty, to be used to restore patency of the infarct-related artery. This study examined the use of a rapid creatine kinase (CK)-MB assay in conjunction with selected clinical variables for noninvasive… CONTINUE READING
