ABSTRACT Objective: In this study, it was aimed to investigate the effect of streptokinase therapy in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and conventional therapy in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients on the thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) risk index (TRI), B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP)levels.
In accordance with convention, patency in the infarct-related artery is graded by angiography according to the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) criteria, in which TIMI 0 is no perfusion past the occlusion; TIMI 1 is penetration past the occlusion without perfusion; TIMI 2 is partial perfusion past the occlusion; and TIMI 3 is complete perfusion (63).
