Value Of Non-Invasive Markers Of Coronary Artery Patency

Abstract

Summary:

Non-invasive method of monitoring reperfusion of infarct-related artery can be
used to identify the majority of patients with inadequate reperfusion. These
non.-responsive patients may get benefit from mechanical revascularizadon. Percent
(%) ST change of> 50 resolutions at 90 minutes of thrombolytic treatment provides a
thod that is both specific and sensitive. CKMB peak within 12 hours gives high
&ree of sensitivity but low specificity. Reperfusion arrhythmias are poor indicator
14 reperfusion having low sensitivity.
