ABSTRACT

 

Aim: To find the frequency of thrombolytic therapy administration in acute ST elevation myocardial infarction in peripheral hospital of KPK

Study Design: Descriptive cross sectional study

Place & Duration: DHQ Hospital Timergara District Dir Lower from 1st January 2017 to 31st December 2017.

Methods: Two hundred and sixty one patients with acute ST elevation myocardial infarction were included. Acute STEMI was defined as typical chest pain and ≥1 mm ST elevation in two consecutive leads.

Results: Mean age was 60±8 years (28-90 years). Anterior MI was more common accounting for 56% of total study population. Male patients were 156 (59.7%). 66.4% were thrombolysed and remaining were deprived of the therapy.

Conclusion: Though in the developed countries primary PCI is used for STEMI but in our peripheral hospitals even most patients are still not thrombolysed properly.
