Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty after intracoronary streptokinase in evolving acute myocardial infarction.

Abstract

To achieve optimal myocardial revascularization and prevent rethrombosis of the infarct-related coronary artery, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) was attempted in 18 patients with evolving acute myocardial infarction (9 anterior and 9 inferior) after administration of intracoronary streptokinase. PTCA was attempted 338 +/- 151 minutes… (More)
