According to current guidelines for the early management of acute myocardial infarction developed by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, a recorded blood pressure greater than / mm Hg is a contraindication to the use of thrombolytic drugs. 49 In a retrospective review of the results of two pilot studies Cited by: thrombolytic therapy with streptokinase improves survival. Similar to Fletcher’s findings, GISSI-1 demonstrated that treatment with thrombolytics was most effective when given early after the onset of AMI. The survival benefit of intraven-ous streptokinase was maintained at 1-year follow-up [18].Cited by: Fibrinolytic (thrombolytic) therapy is capable of reestablishing antegrade blood flow in nearly 75 percent of patients, when administered within the first two hours of symptom onset.

Introduction. The reduction in mortality that can be achieved with reperfusion therapy in patients with evolving myocardial infarction depends on the time elapsing between onset of symptoms and initiation of treatment or, more specifically, on the duration of coronary occlusion before reperfusion. 1 Although earlier reperfusion yields a better clinical outcome the relation between treatment Cited by: Fibrinolytic therapy has been a major advance in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), leading to improved early survival, less heart failure, less ventricular remodeling, and fewer arrhythmias. The thrombolytic era was founded on a fundamental concept: that most cases of AMI are the result of sudden obstruction of an epicardial coronary artery by intracoronary thrombus superimposed on a ruptured or fissured atherosclerotic plaque.

Lancet ; This additional published commentary may also be of interest. In many of the early trials thrombolytic therapy was instituted relatively late — 12 to 24 h after the onset of chest pain. Several small studies demonstrated that high-dose ( million U), brief IV administration of SK could be a safe, effective method of restoring coronary blood flow early in evolving by:
