Content of fibrinogen degradation products, soluble fibrin and the fibrinolytic activity of blood in myocardial infarct

Iu B BelousovV K Nemiro


The blood content of soluble fibrin and D and E fibrinogen fragments, the protamine sulfate test and the activity of plasmin and plasminogen activator were studied in patients with macrofocal myocardial infarction. It was established that the content of soluble fibrin in blood considerably increases in the first days of the disease, and the level of products of fibrinogen D and E disintegrationand the value of the protamine sulfate test increase in the 2nd--3rd week of the disease. The appearance in the blood of fibrinogen derivates was attended by low activity of plasmin and plasminogen activator in blood. The highest content of fibrinogen derivates and low activity of plasmin and plasminogen activator were noted in patients with arrhythmias and congestive circulatory insufficiency. It is suggested that the appearance in circulation of high-molecular fibrinogen compounds is important in the development of rheological disorders.

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
