abstract

  • We investigated the effect of platelet fibrinogen receptor blockade on infarct size after primary angioplasty. Abciximab significantly reduced the time-to-peak creatine kinase without affecting enzymatic infarct size, suggesting a beneficial effect on the pattern and speed of reperfusion.
