Abstract

We compared two groups of patients after acute myocardial infarction. First group was treated with fibrinolytics and they were hospitalized within six hours from the beginning of the first chest-symptoms, and second group that did not come within optimal time was treated with anticoagulants only. The patients were classified according to Killip-classification, shock-index and TIMI-risk-score after myocardial infarction. Results prove great benefit of fibrinolytic therapy in optimal time, concerning both keeping myocardial muscle mass and myocardial pump function.
