Prognostic significance of plasma fibrinolytic activity in patients with acute myocardial infarction: comparative evaluation with other indicators of prognosis
KK Saxena, B Gupta, SSL Srivastava, DN Prasad
1. Various prognostic indicators viz. plasma fibrinogen (PF), CK, ASAT, coronary prognostic indices (CPIs) along with plasma fibrinolytic activity (PFA) were ascertained in patients with acute MI.
2. All the parameters exhibited a rise to different levels signifying variable severity of infarction while PFA diminished to variable degree.
3. PFA and PF were found to be better prognostic indicators than CPls and comparable to CK and ASAT.
