Thrombolytic therapy-associated acute myocardial infarction in patients with acute ischemic stroke: A treatment dilemma
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is uncommon in the acute phase of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and occurs in approximately 1% of the population. Here, we report a paradoxical case of AMI during tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) infusion for AIS. We review and analyze the previously reported cases. We found that only patients with AMI which occurred after thrombolytic therapy for AIS who received an adequate combination of anticoagulation plus percutaneous coronary intervention survived their events.
