In 16 patients requiring coronary artery bypass grafting (10 control and 6 streptokinase patients), we compared the preoperative, operative, and postoperative cardiovascular parameters. Streptokinase patients had an acute myocardial infarction and attempted reperfusion with streptokinase before coronary artery bypass grafting. One patient failed to recannalize with streptokinase and one patient had reocclusion after withdrawal of heparin necessitating coronary artery bypass grafting. Examination of hemodynamic parameters revealed a lower preoperative mean blood pressure and an elevated pulmonary artery wedge pressure in streptokinase patients. The elevated pulmonary artery wedge pressure persisted through the postoperative period of observation. These results indicate that only minor differences exist between control and streptokinase patients. Emergency and elective coronary artery bypass grafting can be safely performed in patients treated with streptokinase for acute myocardial infarction without associated cardiogenic shock.
