Fifty patients until acute myocardial infarction (AMI) were classified into : Group I : 25 patients with AMI who received streptokinase (SK) within 6 hours fromthe onset ofchest pain. Group II: 25 patients with AMI who did not receive SK .Ofgroup 1,15patients had successful reper fusion group HA) and 10patientsfailed to reperfuse group (IB).Ofgroup H ,8 patients spontaneously reperfused group (HA) and 17 patients were permanently occluded. STsegment reduction and reperfusion arrhythmi as were significantly more in patients with successful reperfusion with a sensitivity of 80% and specficity of 90%for ST segment reduction and 47% and 100%respectivelyfor reperfusion arrhythmias .
