Fifty patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI} were classified into : Group 1: 25 patients with AMI who received streptaldnase (SK) within 6 hours from, the onset ofchest pain. Group II: 25 patients with AMIwho did not receive SK.Ofgroup 1,15 patients had successful reperfiisiongroup (IA) and 10patientsfailed to reperfuse group (IB).Ofgroup II ,8 patients spontaneously reperfused group (UA) and 17 patients were permanently occluded. STsegment reduction and reperfusion arrhythmi as were significantly more in patients with successful reperfusion with a sensitivity of 60% and specificity of 90%for ST segment reduction and 47% and 100% respectivelyfor reperfusion arrhythmias .
