Abstract

Background: Increased procoagulant activity and/or impaired fibrinolysis contribute to the development and organization of thrombus, subsequently resulting in complete or incomplete obstruction in acute coronary syndromes (ACS). We investigated the relationship between culprit lesion severity and thrombotic and fibrinolytic parameters in patients who had non-ST elevation ACS (NSTE-ACS).
