A major assumption in the treatment of patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) implies that the speed of coronary arterial reperfusion correlates directly with the overall extent of myocardial salvage, and that the extent of mycardial salvage, in turn, determines the absolute reduction in patient mortality. While a growing experience has made it clear that myocardial salvage-independent (time-independent) mechanisms of benefit also exist, few would argue with the hypothesis that the greatest benefit derived from coronary thrombolysis occurs with early (time-dependent) treatment. Thus, improvements in the efficacy of reperfusion and the stability of reperfusion are likely to have considerable impact on patient outcome.
