Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine the proportion of platelets and fibrin in coronary thrombi. DESIGN Immunohistochemical and morphometric means to examine the coronary arteries of 31 patients who died of acute myocardial infarction. RESULTS Fresh thrombi were detected in the feeding arteries of infarction areas in 23 cases (74%) and were associated with plaque… (More)
