Thrombin Generation in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction Treated with Front-Loaded rt-PA and Recombinant Hirudin (HBW 023)


Thrombin contributes to the pathogenesis of acute myocardial infarction and reocclusion after thrombolysis. Thrombolytic therapy is known to induce a paradoxic increase in thrombin generation. Specific thrombin inhibition enhances thrombolytic therapy in experimental models. The aim of this study was to determine thrombin generation in patients with acute… (More)
