infarct size, the improve. of ventr. func., the
reduction of the incidence of congest.

AMI. Tmt. should be initiated as soon as
possible after the onset of AMI sympt.
Acute Massive Pulmon. embol. with

For the lysis of pulmon. emboli

The diagnosis should be confirmed by
objective means, such as pulmon.
angiography or noninvasive procedures
such as lung scanning.For fibrinolytic
treatment of acute ischaemic stroke Tmt.
must be started as early as possible within
4.5 hrs. after onset of stroke sympt.and
after exclusion of intracr. haemorrhage by
appropriate imaging techniques (e.g.
cranial CT or other diag. imaging method
sensitive for the presence of
haemorrhage). The tmt. effect is timedependent;
therefore earlier tmt. incr. the
probability of a favourable outcome.
