The efficacy of intracoronary urokinase (UK) in an acute myocardial infarction has not been firmly established in a randomized fashion. Two hundred and ten patients were randomized to UK therapy (107 patients) and placebo (103 patients). Successful recanalization was achieved in 74% of the UK group vs 17% in the placebo group (p less than 0.01). The success rate was dose dependent up to 960,000 I.U. Clinical course was favorable and left ventricular enddiastolic pressure was reduced significantly in the UK group compared with the placebo group (p less than 0.05). Ejection fraction one month after the study was better in the reopened group than in the occluded group. Thus, early administration of UK can establish coronary reflow in a high proportion of patients and appears to favor the clinical course.
