Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow scores were originally devised as semiquantitative angiographic measures of coronary artery perfusion. Several studies have indicated an important relation between different TIMI flow grades at 90 minutes after thrombolysis and clinical outcome. To further evaluate this relation we conducted a metaanalysis of all angiographic, postinfarction trials that studied the relation between individual 90-minute TIMI flow grades and mortality rates.
