Using a specific quantitative method based on gas chromatography-mass spectrometry the urinary excretion of 2,3-dinor-TxB2 was measured in five patients with acute myocardial infarction shortly after the onset of symptoms. The urinary excretion of 2,3-dinor-TxB2 was markedly higher than seen in normals in three of the five patients. This increased excretion of 2,3-dinor-TxB2 during and after the development of myocardial necrosis indicates an involvement of thromboxane A2 in the pathogenesis of at least some cases of acute myocardial infarction.
