Serum C-reactive protein and infarct size in myocardial infarct patients with a closed versus an open infarct-related coronary artery after thrombolytic therapy.

Abstract

Serum C-reactive protein rises in acute myocardial infarction, correlating positively with infarct size if thrombolytic treatment is not given. This correlation disappears if thrombolytic treatment is given, although the serum C-reactive protein concentration is still associated with the clinical outcome of the patient. We studied the effect of early… (More)
