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.
