The period between the onset of symptoms to administration of fibrinolytic therapy can be divided as follows:
Conclusion: The mortality of patients presenting with acute STEMI treated with fibrinolytic therapy was significantly reduced after optimal hospital organization.
The PCI-ExTRACT-TIMI 25 study examined the use of enoxaparin versus unfractionated heparin (UFH) among patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who had received fibrinolytic therapy and subsequently underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Dosing and treatment costs for antiplatelet therapy, anticoagulant therapy, betablocker therapy and fibrinolytic therapy are provided, along with market size estimates and annual sales of major therapies.
ATLANTA -- The low-molecular-weight heparin enoxaparin was more effective than unfractionated heparin as an adjunct to fibrinolytic therapy in patients with an acute myocardial infarction in a study with more than 20,000 patients.
Levine Cardiac Unit at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and lead author of the ExTRACT-TIMI 25 study said, "The results of this trial are dramatic and significant; a strategy using enoxaparin prevents more patients from dying or having a second heart attack within 30 days of treatment compared to the strategy using unfractionated heparin, which up to now has been considered the standard blood thinner regimen used to support fibrinolytic therapy.

The patient was hospitalized and a fibrinolytic therapy with tissue plasminogen activator was administrated.
ATLANTA -- Comparisons between enoxaparin and fondaparinux were perhaps inevitable when findings from two major clinical trials that evaluated the two different antithrombotic drugs as adjuncts to fibrinolytic therapy for acute MI were reported back-to-back at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology.
Use of anticoagulant, antithrombotic, and fibrinolytic therapy in the treatment of coronary artery disease has been steadily increasing in recent years.
