PMID:  6224648     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An example of rapid, spontaneous resolution of an eccentric coronary luminal narrowing from 95 percent to 80 percent and subsequently to 50 percent stenosis over a six-week time period is presented. Spontaneous thrombolysis is proposed as the explanation for these changes and is discussed with reference to existing experimental and clinical observations.
