The effect of streptokinase on intramyocardial hemorrhage, infarct size, and the no-reflow phenomenon during coronary reperfusion.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether streptokinase exacerbates intramyocardial hemorrhage during coronary reperfusion, has any intrinsic effect on myocardial infarct size other than its ability to lyse proximal thrombi in coronary arteries, and can abolish the no-reflow phenomenon. Anesthetized open-chest dogs underwent coronary occlusion for… (More)
