PMID:  3592299     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Coronary recanalization with thrombolytic agents is a new therapeutic approach to the treatment of acute myocardial infarction that can be beneficial even to patients in cardiogenic shock. Although few cases have been reported in the literature, treatment of acute occlusion of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) has been made possible by myocardial reperfusion. This communication concerns a patient with acute LMCA occlusion who was successfully treated by thrombolytic therapy with streptokinase followed by revascularization of the myocardium seventy-two hours after reperfusion was achieved.
