PMID:  1591557     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Reperfusion of ischaemic myocardium with thrombolytic agents during the early stages of acute myocardial infarction reduces the mortality rate and can limit infarct size with associated sparing of left ventricular function. Effective and safe regimens are now available and in the absence of contraindications thrombolysis should now form part of the standard management acute myocardial infarction.
