AIM: to report the clinical evolution of four patients with acute myocardial infarction that were subjected to immediate coronary angioplasty due to the failure of reperfusion with streptokinase. BACKGROUND: the limitations for the use of thrombolytic agents, an accepted treatment of acute myocardial infarction, or their uncertain results in selected groups of patients has prompted the search for mechanical revascularization infarction subjected to thrombolytic therapy with streptokinase (1.500.000 U i.v.) after administration of hydrocortisone (100 mg i.v.) and acetyl salicylic acid (500 mg od). After 60 min thrombolytic therapy and due to hemodynamic depression with requirement of inotropic agents or the absence of clinical signs of reperfusion, the patients were subjected to coronary angiography. In view of a total occlusion or severe stenosis of the artery responsible for the infarction, an immediate transluminal angiography was performed to improve coronary flow. RESULTS: translum
